Police have arrested four people in connection to two stabbings in Ipswich today involving the same person.
Police were called to Oaks Caravan Park in Kirton Road, Bucklesham, just before 5am today, (Saturday, August 11) to reports a 30-year-old man had been stabbed in the arm an hour earlier at 4am.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to his injury but left shortly afterwards.
Officers were then called at 12.25pm today to a second stabbing in Grebe Close in Ipswich.
The same 30-year-old man had suffered stab wounds to his bottom and back.
He was rushed back to hospital where his condition is currently described as stable but serious.
A police spokesman said: “Officers believe that the people involved are known to each other, was targeted and as such there is no wider threat to the community.
“Enquiries are on-going and the public can expect to see reassurance patrols conducted in both locations during the rest of today.”
Police have cordoned off an area of Hawthorn Drive which is believed to be linked to the stabbings.
Two police cars remain at the scene of the cordon, which has been set up between St Marks Catholic Church and St Francis Church.
Police are appealing for information from anyone who may have seen or heard anything this morning in the vicinity of Oaks Caravan Park or today in the vicinity of Grebe Close.
Police are also interested in anyone who may have been driving through those locations who has dash cam footage.
Anyone with information to either incident is asked to contact Ipswich CID on 101 quoting crime reference 37/45529/18 for the first incident and 37/45582/18 for the second incident.
