Police are searching for a man with a suspected stab wound after two people suffered serious injuries in Bury St Edmunds.

A man in his 20s was found at the scene of an assault in the street at Shillitoe Close at about 6.35pm on Saturday, August 18.

He was taken to hospital with a serious head injury and is in a stable condition.

But police believe a second man was also injured.
