A man in his 20s has sustained injuries after an attack in Ipswich this morning.

Police were called by the East of England Ambulance Service, at just before 1.00am this morning, Monday June 11 to reports that a man had been stabbed at an address in Pauline Street in the town.

Officers were immediately despatched and confirmed that a man in his 20s sustained several stab wounds and was taken to hospital.

His condition is not life-threatening but is described as ‘serious but stable’ at this time.

The victim has received more than ten stab wounds to his torso and legs.

The offenders are described as black men who were wearing face coverings.

There is currently a police scene in place at the address.

A police spokesperson said: “At this very early stage of the investigation officers believe that this was a targeted attack, but are not linking this incident with the murder of Tavis Spencer-Aitkens that took place last weekend. “Police are keeping an open mind as they investigate the full circumstances of what has taken place.”

Superintendent Kerry Cutler from Suffolk police told BBC Radio Suffolk this morning:“This mindless violence needs to stop. This is our county town we need to take our streets back, we need to ensure they are safe for our community.”

She added that her husband had been the duty superintendent last weekend and had taken the call about Tavis, this morning she was duty superintendent and had taken the call about this latest incident:“I do not want to take another phone call about somebody from our community being stabbed.”

Any witnesses to the incident are asked to contact South CID at Landmark House on 101 quoting reference CAD 14 of 11 June.

Alternatively you can call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
