Officers were called to reports of an aggravated burglary at a home in Ranelagh Road, near Buzz Bingo shortly after 10.30pm yesterday.

A police cordon was put in place around the house this morning, with forensic vans and a police car parked up nearby.

A spokeswoman for the force said: "The call came in at 10.33pm, we responded to an aggravated burglary.

"There were no serious injuries. Two people have been arrested.

"One person sustained a very minor puncture wound.

She added: "We do not believe this to be a random attack."

Two men have since been arrested in connection with the incident, the spokeswoman added.

They have been taken to the Martlesham police investigation centre, where they are being questioned.

Witnesses to the attack and anyone with information should call Suffolk Constabulary on 101 quoting CAD reference number 365 of yesterday, January 11.
