A man arrested in connection to an assault in Ipswich which left a man with a puncture wound to his neck has been released on bail.

The assault happened at around 10.20pm on Saturday, March 30 outside Aurora Bar and restaurant, in Helena Road, on the Waterfront.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said officers received reports that two men, who detectives believe are known to each other, had a verbal argument inside the bar which continued outside.

One of the men, aged 26, was then assaulted, suffering a puncture wound to his neck which required stitches at hospital. A spokesman said it is not yet known what he was attacked with.

Yesterday, Monday, April 1, officers arrested a 31-year-old man from Felixstowe on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm, taking him to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

He was later released on bail until Friday, April 26 pending further enquiries.

Police are appealing for any witnesses, either to the argument in the bar or the fight outside, to come forward.
