Police investigating the circumstances surrounding the stabbing of a man and a teenager in Leiston last night say that the victims may have known the people that attacked them.

Officers were sent to Farrow Close last night after they were told that a 26-year-old man had been stabbed in the upper body.

At around the same time, they were called to a 16-year-old boy with similar injuries at the nearby Harling Way playing field.

The victims were both taken to hospital, but their injuries aren't thought to be life-threatening.

Police say that they will be carrying out high visibility patrols in the local area across the weekend.

"Officers are working to establish the details of these attacks which left two people with stab wounds.

It is thought that the offenders may be known to the victims and we would urge anyone with any information on what happened to contact us.”
