Police were only alerted after paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service contacted officers to inform them about the victim who had been found on a bench in Tower Street at about 5.05am.

CID have now launched an investigation into the attack, and have urged anyone with any information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "Detectives remain open minded as to the motive for this attack, but are treating it as an isolated incident at this time. As such, there is not believed to be any threat to the wider community.

"Officers are appealing for witnesses and are also asking for anyone who was driving in the vicinity of the above named roads - or the wider area including Handford Road, London Road and Elliott Street - between 4.30am and 5.30am and with a dashcam in their vehicle to review the footage for any suspicious persons."

The police have asked anyone with information to contact South CID at Landmark House in Ipswich, quoting reference 29838/21.
