A 31-year-old man is on bail today after a stabbing outside an Ipswich nightclub.

The attack took place early yesterday morning outside The Attic in St Helens Street..

The man, who has not been identified but is believed to be aged about 40, was assaulted around 2.45am.

The emergency services were called by someone using a mobile phone and paramedics arrived and took the injured man to Ipswich Hospital.

Police also attended the scene and later arrested a 31-year-old Ipswich man on suspicion of wounding and causing grievous bodily harm.

He has been released on police bail and must return to Ipswich Police Station on August 6.

The injuries sustained by the stabbing victim are not believed to have been life-threatening said a Suffolk Police spokesman today.

In a separate incident yesterday morning, a man suffered facial injuries in a fight near to the Chevallier Club, in Chevallier Street, Ipswich, and Inkerman Inn, in Norwich Road.

Two men are believed to have assaulted him and when police arrived, at about 1.15am, they located a brick near to the scene of the fight which is thought could have been used as a weapon.

An ambulance was called but the injured man refused medical treatment and also told police he did not want to take the matter any further.

His friends came out of the Chevallier Club to take him home.

Yesterday's two incidents come just over a week after two men were injured in an incident at Liquid nightclub, in Cardinal Park.

The incident during the early hours of July 7 resulted in one man receiving a blow to the head and another being slashed across the face with a broken bottle.
