A 15-year-old girl has been arrested after two men were stabbed in Ipswich.

Officers were called just after 5.30am to reports of a double stabbing at a property in Moore Road, Suffolk Police said.

The victims, both aged 21, were taken to Ipswich hospital by ambulance with injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.

The 15-year-old girl, from Ipswich, was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent.

Detective Inspector Holly Evans said: “We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information to come forward.

“We believe this is an isolated incident and do not feel there is an obvious increased risk to the wider public.”

Witnesses or people who were in the area with dashcams can contact South CID at Landmark House on 101 quoting reference CAD 83 of 16 December.

Ms Evans said police were not connecting the attack to a fatal stabbing in Turin Street, Ipswich, on Sunday afternoon.
