A man accused of striking another man with a hammer in Bury St Edmunds has been charged by Suffolk police.
Police were called to the Cornhill shortly before 4pm on Wednesday, October 16 following reports a man in his 20s had been hit with a hammer.
The victim was taken to West Suffolk Hospital for treatment of his injuries, which police say are not deemed to be life-threatening or life-changing.
Samuel Ryder, of Firtree Close in Bury St Edmunds, was arrested a short time later before being taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
The 25-year-old has since been charged with malicious wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH) and for possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.
