A man with a large head wound was discovered by police in a property on Gainsborough Road in Stowmarket on Friday evening.

He is currently in hospital unable to speak - leaving the police mystified as to what happened.

The man was found after a member of the public approached a police car at around 5.30pm on Friday and told police he was concerned about an incident on Gainsborough Road.

When the officers got to the house, they found a man of around 65 years lying in a bedroom suffering from what appeared to be a blow to the head.

A police spokesman described the man as being “incoherent” and he was taken to hospital.
