Both have been treated and are at home beginning their recovery.

Suffolk Police say would like to thank everyone who has contacted them to express their concerns and pass on their good wishes.

It is hoped Steve will be back to work next week but will be off front line duty for 2-3 weeks while his injuries heal.

It is unknown at this time when 6-year-old Aman will return to work, however he will be assessed before doing so to ensure that he is both physically fit and hasn’t been physiologically affected by the incident.

Ipswich : Police Officer and Dog Stabbed
26th October 2011, 16:30
A police officer and a police dog in Ipswich are recovering after being stabbed on a call-out last night.
They have been named as 52-year-old Pc Steven Jay and his dog Aman.

A 21-year-old man remains in custody following an incident where a member of the public, police dog handler and a police dog were stabbed in Ipswich, last night, Tuesday 25th October.

Police were alerted by the ambulance service around 8.05pm (Tuesday 25th October) to reports a man had been stabbed in the stomach at an address in Oulton Road in Ipswich.

Officers attended the address with ambulance personnel and found the man with a wound to his stomach. He was conscious and was taken to Ipswich Hospital.

Following information gathered, police tracked a man believed to be the offender and stopped him in Nacton Road. He was agitated, in possession of a knife and officers attempted to detain him by using a taser. A police dog and handler were at the scene and in the attempts to arrest him both the dog and the police officer were stabbed.

The 47-year-old man who was wounded at the address in Oulton Road was operated on last night after several stab wounds to the stomach area were found; he is said to be in a stable condition this morning.

Pc Jay was treated in hospital last night for several knife wounds to his arm and back; he is now recovering at home. It is believed that the officer’s protective clothing prevented more serious injury from occurring.

The police dog, Aman, had emergency surgery last night at a veterinary clinic for a number of stab wounds. The dog is said to be recovering well and it is hoped there will be no lasting damage.

The 21-year-old man who was arrested will be questioned today by officers at the Ipswich Police Investigation Centre.

Officers are asking anyone who may have seen any part of the incident to call Ipswich CID on 101 or Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
