Two people have been arrested after a man is believed to have had a small piece of his ear bitten off during an assault in an Ipswich nightspot.

The incident occurred at Revolution Ipswich, formerly Vodka Revolution, in the Cattle Market.

The victim – a 29-year-old from Stowmarket - is said to have lost a piece of his left ear missing as a result of being attacked.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said although an ambulance was despatched following the incident, which occurred at around 1.30am on Sunday, paramedics were stood down as the injured man appeared to have already gone to hospital.

Natalie Doughty, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary, said the victim sustained an injury to the lower part of his left ear which eventually required treatment at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.

As a result of the incident police have arrested two men.

A 28-year-old man from Ipswich and a 39-year-old man from Leiston were detained on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.
