Three men have been stabbed in fight in an Ipswich park.
A 22-year-old man and two 17-year-old boys have been arrested after the incident in Christchurch Park last night where at least three people were stabbed.
Police were contacted by the ambulance service just after 6.50pm. The paramedics had been called to reports that a man had been stabbed in the leg in the park during a fight.
Police officers and ambulance staff attended and found a man with several wounds to his legs near the junction of Park Road and Henley Road. A few minutes later a second man was found with a stab wound and cuts to his face and a wound to his body, and a third man was found with a small puncture wound in his shoulder.
Two of the three men have been taken to Ipswich hospital where they are being assessed and treated. The third man with the shoulder wound was checked over by ambulance staff at the scene.
A search, involving police officers on the ground and the helicopter, was launched to trace those involved and also to try to determine if there were any further victims. Enquiries are continuing into this.
The three, all from Ipswich, were arrested a short time later and in custody at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where they are being interviewed by detectives.
Areas of Christchurch Park are closed this morning as police search the scene.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident, anyone who may have witnessed any altercation in the area around this time, or anyone who may find any discarded weapon that may be linked to this, to come forward.
