A man will stand trial charged in relation to a kidnapping in Ipswich.

Ishmael O’Connor, of Nacton Crescent, was arrested on Friday after medics at Ipswich Hospital released him following treatment for injuries he suffered as he fled from police officers as they executed a warrant at an address in Duke Street on May 13.

The alleged kidnap incident happened on March 4 in Bell Close.

Twenty-three-year-old O’Connor was charged with false imprisonment and GBH.

He appeared at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich on Saturday where he pleaded not guilty.

He will next appear at Ipswich Crown Court on May 30.
