Two teenagers have been arrested after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed in Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds last night.

Between 6.20pm and 6.50pm two boys were walking down the path next to Mount Road when they were approached by two older male teenagers — one of whom was carrying a knife.

The two older teenagers reportedly chased the two boys and assaulted one of them, leaving him with a single puncture wound to the shoulder.

The two older teenagers then fled.

The 14-year-old victim was taken to hospital but discharged earlier today.

At around 2.30am today, Sunday, January 30, police arrested a teenage boy and a man in Newmarket on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

Both have been taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre where they will be questioned by detectives.
