A 36-year-old man has been arrested after a paramedic was allegedly assaulted in Bury St Edmunds yesterday.

At about 5.15pm on April 21, police officers were called to an address on the Howard Estate area after a report that a paramedic had been assaulted by a man after responding to a medical incident.

The man was reported to have left the house, and there were concerns for his welfare, a police spokesperson said.

According to police, officers attended and located the man who was taken to hospital, before being arrested on suspicion of the assault.

A helicopter from East Anglian Air Ambulance was also pictured arriving on the estate.

In a tweet yesterday, Bury St Edmunds Police asked members of the public "to keep an eye out for a male in a grey t-shirt and grey underpants possibly covered in blood".

He was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning but has now been released under investigation, pending further enquiries, Suffolk police said.
