Police are continuing their investigation this morning into a suspected stabbing in Ipswich last night.
Paramedics treated a man, believed to be around 30-years-old, who suffered injuries in an incident last night in Dickens Road, which connects London Road and Hadleigh Road.
Police said they were called to Dickens Road at around 10.15pm to reports of a stabbing. It is believed he suffered a single stab wound to a leg.
A member of the public reported that a man had been assaulted with a knife in the street, Suffolk Constabulary said. A number of paramedics and police units from the Ipswich area were quickly sent to the scene.
A police spokesman said the injured man was not seriously hurt and did not require hospital treatment.
He was checked over by paramedics at the scene.
It is believed he was stabbed in the leg but enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances.
The spokesman said it is too early to determine whether the latest suspected stabbing is linked to other recent knife-related attacks in the town.
This morning, police confirmed there had been no arrests in connection with the incident. A police cordon was not put in place at any point.
An East of England Ambulance Service Trust spokesman said: “We were called at 10.05pm yesterday to an incident on Dickens Road, in Ipswich.
“An ambulance crew and an ambulance officer were dispatched to the scene to help.
“At the scene we assessed a man, believe to be in his 30s. However, the patient refused treatment and left the scene.”
