A man who was stabbed in Bury St Edmunds at the weekend remains in a critical condition, as two people arrested in connection with the incident are released on bail.
Officers were called at 3.55am in the early hours of yesterday, Sunday 20 June, to reports that a man had been seriously injured following an incident on Winsford Road in the town.
Police located a man in his 40s in the road having sustained serious stab wounds. The victim was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by ambulance where he remains in a critical condition.
Early enquiries lead detectives to believe that this was an isolated incident and as such, there is not any wider threat to the local community.
Shortly after the incident, police arrested a man in his 50s on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and he was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
Yesterday afternoon, a second man aged in his teens was also arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and was also taken into custody.
Both men have now been released on police bail until Tuesday 13th July and Friday 16th July respectively, pending further enquiries.
The road closures put in place around Winsford Road have now been lifted.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Major Investigation Team on 101 quoting reference: 32846/21.
