A Suffolk police spokesman said: “Following initial police enquiries, it was reported that the victim (aged 17) had been in an argument with three other teenagers – at least one of whom is believed to have been known to him.

“The victim was then struck over the head with a glass bottle and as a result sustained lacerations to the side of his head, which required treatment at hospital."
