Update: Ipswich Man Falls From Balcony In Raid

A man's got internal injuries after jumping from a balcony in Ipswich in a drugs raid and man arrested.

A man has sustained injuries after jumping from the balcony of a flat as he fled from police officers who were executing a warrant at an address in Duke Street in Ipswich on Monday 13 May. 

Police went to the flat around 6pm to execute a search warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act. 

As officers went into the premises two men left the flat via the balcony and jumped from the third floor to the second floor. One of the men then went into the second floor flat and was detained by the occupants and police officers while the second man jumped from the second floor balcony to the ground. 

The man, who is in his twenties, sustained a number of injuries including pelvis, hand, leg and possible internal injuries and was taken to Ipswich Hospital for assessment and treatment. He remains in hospital this morning in a stable condition.

Suffolk Police have voluntarily referred this incident to the IPCC this morning due to the injuries sustained by the man.

The second man, a 27-year-old from Ipswich, was arrested on suspicion of money laundering, supply of a class A drug and kidnap. He has been taken to the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where he currently remains. 

A third man turned up at the property whilst officers were on scene and was detained, however he was later released. 

During the incident a Taser was discharged but this did not make contact with anyone. 

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101
