Police are looking for help to find out why a 15-year-old boy was stabbed in Ipswich.

The teenage boy was stabbed in an incident in the Martinet Green area of Ipswich on Friday night.

The teenager is believed to have been stabbed twice in his stomach and wrist, just before 11.30pm.

Witnesses have described seeing a group of young men on the green before one individual lunged at the teenager and he fell to the ground.

One man then fled the scene while other members of the group gathered around the 15-year-old and called emergency services.

Police have released a description of a man they are looking for.  He's described as 'a male in his mid teens to 20s, of average build, around 5ft 9ins - 5ft 11ins tall, with short dark hair, wearing jeans and a dark jacket."

The 15-year-old boy remains in a stable condition in Ipswich Hospital.

Police are investigating possible motives for the incident and are asking anyone who saw what happened or anyone with information about who stabbed the teenager to call Ipswich CID on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously if required, on 0800 555 111.
