Two people remain in custody this morning and three have been bailed following an assault in Civic Drive, Ipswich, yesterday afternoon.

Suffolk police officers were called at 3.15pm to the stretch of road near the magistrates’ court by the East of England Ambulance Service, after paramedics found a man in his late 20s with a head injury.

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said his injuries were not critical or life-threatening.

One witness at the scene said a woman entered the magistrates court screaming for help that someone had been stabbed.

It is understood that a nearby property in Little Gipping Street was damaged in a related incident when an object was thrown through a window.

The stabbed victim was then treated by paramedics before police arrived at the scene.

A bobble hat was found outside the Axa Insurance building.
