A MAN has been cleared of being involved in a late-night attack in Ipswich Town Centre which left a teenager with life-threatening injuries.

Slawomir Inczewski, 25, of Woodbridge Road, Ipswich had denied wounding 19-year-old Matthew Buckman with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm with a blunt instrument and was found not guilty by a jury.

A second man - Damien Brauer of Woodbridge Road - has admitted wounding Mr Buckman with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm with a knife and is awaiting sentence.

During the week-long trial at Ipswich Crown Court it was alleged that Mr Buckman was attacked by two men in an alleyway between Upper Brook Street and the nearby Woolworths car park.

Mr Buckman was stabbed in the face, arm and twice in the neck and hit with a blunt instrument.

After the attack a friend applied pressure to his neck to stem the flow of blood and paramedics saved his life with further treatment.
