It's after a 42-year-old man called police reporting he had been knocked off his bike by a car outside Newmarket Railway Station yesterday afternoon at around 3.45pm before being assaulted and taken to Manderston Road where he was further assaulted and threatened before managing to leave. He suffered a broken hand and minor facial injuries.

A 33-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman, both from Newmarket, have been arrested on suspicion of kidnap and making threats to kill; the second offence in relation to an incident in a betting shop in Newmarket High Street yesterday afternoon. Both are known to the victim. They are currently in custody at Bury St Edmunds Police Station.

Anyone who may have witnessed the road traffic collision outside the train station, or was in the Manderston Road area yesterday afternoon and may be able to assist the investigation, should call West Suffolk CID on 01284 774100 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
