The police have made a renewed appeal for information after a man received a serious stab wound in Haverhill town centre.

Police were called at 12.30am on Saturday, April 25, after a 35-year-old man was attacked and stabbed by a group of three males and a female.

The attack took place in an alleyway off the town’s High Street.

The victim then walked from the High Street to the Bull pub in Camps Road, where he collapsed and was assisted by members of the public.

The ambulance service attended and took the man to Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, where he underwent surgery for a laceration to the abdomen.

Inspector Peter Ferrie of Haverhill Police, said the police were still investigating the incident but were yet to discover a motive for the crime.

He said: “The stabbing took place in an alley way next to the post office in Haverhill.

“It was a very serious stab wound. The man was in hospital for nearly two weeks, which should give some indication of how serious it was.”

Police are currently reviewing CCTV footage of the area and have been given descriptions of the suspects. Members of the public with information are urged to come forward.

“We are really keen to talk to anyone who can tell us what it was all about,” said Insp Ferrie. “At the moment, it seems to us to be a drunken argument that got out of control.”

Anyone with information that may help is asked to contact Haverhill police on 101, asking to speak to PC Chris Thomas.
