A 17-year-old boy who was stabbed in Ipswich last night had to call his own ambulance, it has emerged, as police question five men in relation to the incident.
The victim, bleeding profusely from a stab wound, was left to call for an ambulance himself after his attackers ran off on Monday evening.
The teenager was found in the alley between Bramford Lane and Broadway Lane, next to Westbourne Academy by emergency services.
He was rushed to hospital but Suffolk Police said this morning that ‘fortunately’ his injuries are not life-threatening.
Two boys, aged 16 and 17, two 18-year-old men and a 20-year-old man were arrested between 7:15 pm and 7:20 pm in connection with the knifing and are all believed to be from the local area.
All five suspects have been taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning and remain in custody this morning.
Concerned residents demanded action today in response to the violent stabbing that occurred on the footpath near to their homes last night.
