It follows an attack which took place in the grounds of the Holy Trinity Church in Back Hamlet on Saturday, between 2pm and 2.10pm.

The teenage boy sustained injuries to his leg after he was assaulted by another man. He was taken to hospital for treatment, before he was discharged the next day.

The suspect made off from the scene in a waiting car, which is believed to have contained another two male passengers and a female driver.

The car then made off up Back Hamlet, towards the junction of Foxhall Road and Grove Lane.

On Monday, a 41-year-old woman from Stowmarket was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

She remains on bail until December 17 pending further inquiries.

Detectives are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to this incident, or anyone who may have seen a car in Back Hamlet making off towards Foxhall Road at just after 2pm on Saturday.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact South CID at Landmark House in Ipswich, quoting reference: 65671/21.
