Police are investigating reports that a man suffered stab wounds and cuts to his throat and chin on Ipswich Waterfront last night.

Emergency crews, including paramedics and police officers, were sent to the scene in Helena Road, near the Aurora cocktail bar and restaurant, shortly after 10.30pm yesterday.

Police said they were originally investigating reports of an assault but now have new information suggesting he suffered cuts or stab wounds to his throat and chin area.

An ambulance spokesman said they were called to reports of a person who was unconscious.

The man involved was taken to A&E where he was treated for his wounds.

“We sent one ambulance and took the patient to Ipswich Hospital for further treatment.”
