Three teenagers arrested in connection with a stabbing in Haverhill have been released on bail.

The incident occurred at around 7.20pm on Sunday 24 March.

He was taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries and was discharged yesterday (Monday 25th March).

Three teenage boys from Haverhill - aged 17, 15 and 13 – were all arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm, around 45 minutes after the incident occurred.

They were taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and have subsequently been released on bail until Sunday 21 April, pending further enquires.
