A STABBING victim is recovering today after a Christmas knifing horror near Felixstowe.
Emergency services were called to High Road, Trimley St Martin just after 10pm on December 24.
One onlooker said they were alerted to the incident when they saw three or four police vehicles hurtling towards Gosling's Farm near to the road which leads towards the A14.
Officers pulled up outside three terraced cottages opposite the farm, following a call to Suffolk police at 10.02pm.
Shortly after they arrived they were joined by reinforcements and eventually around ten police vehicles were at the scene.
An ambulance crew was despatched to one of the cottages, a minute after police received a telephone call from someone inside the premises.

A spokesman for East Anglian Ambulance Trust confirmed paramedics had been sent to help a man at the property. Originally the crew were told he had sustained more than one wound during an incident.
However, a spokeswoman for Suffolk police said he was treated for a single stab wound to the chest.
Although the man was taken to Ipswich Hospital for treatment after being assessed by paramedics, the spokeswoman said his injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening.
The onlooker, who saw police at the row of cottages, said some remained around the house, while others appeared to be searching for someone.
"They had five or six officers around the house, while five or six were prowling around with their flashlights on."
A woman, who lives nearby, said she saw police still at the scene an hour-and-a-half later, but at the time assumed officers were trawling the area for drink drivers.
The Suffolk police spokeswoman confirmed a man had been arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm. He was taken to Felixstowe police station for questioning and then released on bail pending further inquiries.
The suspect has been told he must return to the town's police station on January 20.
