Two Arrested After Man Stabbed In Head In Ipswich
12 December 2018, 16:40
Two people have been arrested following an incident at Cardinal Park in Ipswich.
Officers were called to the area just after 5.30pm yesterday, Tuesday 11 December, to reports that a man had been attacked in the car park.
The victim was assaulted by two men and taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are described as superficial lacerations to the head and he has since been discharged.
Following initial police enquires into the incident, it would appear that a man and a woman entered Nando's restaurant where the man encountered two other men who were known to him.
A verbal disagreement is then reported to have taken place and the man and the woman left the restaurant, before the attack took place outside. During the course of the incident a pepper spray was also discharged.
A 26-year-old man from Sudbury and a 28-year-old woman from Colchester, were both arrested on suspicion of affray following this incident and taken into police custody for questioning. They have now both been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
Detective Inspector Dan Connick, of South CID, said: "Whilst I recognise this would have been a distressing incident for those who witnessed it and may have affected people in the immediate vicinity, I would like to reassure members of the public that we believe this was an isolated altercation between people known to each other and not connected to any other incidents in the town.
"I would like to thank the witnesses who spoke with our officers last night and assisted with our enquires. The investigation is ongoing and we working to locate all parties involved."
Any witnesses who have not already spoken to police officers are asked to contact South CID at Landmark House on 101 quoting reference 71640/18.
