Southwold and Halesworth men charged after attack in London Road, Beccles – as another man suffers serious injuries
Two men have been charged with attempted murder after an incident in Beccles over the weekend.
At about 2.45pm on Saturday, a man in his 50s was attacked by a group of males in London Road.
They are alleged to have got out of a car, pulled the man to the ground and stamped on him before driving over his torso.
The gang then fled the scene.
When police arrived, they found the man had suffered serious injuries and was rushed to James Paget Hospital.
While he remains in treatment, his condition was described as stable, a Suffolk Police spokesman said.
Yesterday, two men were arrested in connection with the incident.
Nathan Baker, 19 of Quay Street in Halesworth, and Daniel Hermon, 26 of Market Place, Southwold, were later charged with attempted murder.
They were remanded in custody and are set to appear before Norwich Magistrates’ Court today.
