A MAN required stitches following a confrontation with two other men in an Ipswich alleyway last night.

The man in his 50s was walking in the alleyway off Tern Road in the Chantry area of the town at around 6.50pm when two men approached. There was an exchange of words and one of the men pushed the victim.

The man suffered cuts to his face and hands from an unknown implement held by the offender, who then walked off with his companion. The man was last night receiving hospital treatment for his injuries which required stitches.

The offender is described as white, in his 30s, six-feet tall and of slim build with short hair. He was wearing a hooded black American Football jacket, possibly an Oakland Raiders jacket.

The second man is described as white, in his 30s, five feet, seven inches tall and of medium build. He was wearing a burgundy hooded sweatshirt and was also smoking.

Officers want to speak to anyone who was in the Tern Road area yesterday evening and may have witnessed this incident or saw the men before or after the assault.
