Insp Mike Hinshelwood, of Suffolk police, said her condition was serious but the injuries were not initially thought to be life-threatening.
He said they could not speculate on the possible motives for the attack until detectives had been able to speak to the injured woman.
He added: "We are particularly keen to trace an old red car and male occupant in his early 40s, who was clean shaven and believed to be involved in this incident."
