Two people have been arrested after a man was stabbed in Haverhill yesterday evening.

Officers were called to the incident which took place around 6.10pm in the car park near the entrance to Haverhill Rugby Club on School Lane.

The victim, a man in his 30s, suffered a single stab wound to the chest which punctured his lung, and he currently remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Police said the victim was with a friend in a white Vauxhall Astra and after both men got out of the vehicle, they were approached by a group of five or six males.

An altercation is then understood to have taken place and one of the men stabbed the victim with a knife.

Both the victim and his friend then got back into the car and drove a short distance down School Lane before calling emergency services.

The victim was treated by the East of England Ambulance Service and taken to hospital.

Officers attended and a short time later arrested an 18-year-old man from Haverhill on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent.

A teenage girl, also from Haverhill, was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

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

A police cordon is currently in place to allow investigations to continue.

Witnesses or anyone with information regarding the incident are asked to call police on 101, quoting reference 34609/18.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
