A woman has been arrested in connection with an attack in the grounds of an Ipswich church which left a teenage boy needing hospital treatment for leg injuries.

Police investigating the assault, which happened in the grounds of the Holy Trinity Church in Back Hamlet between 2pm and 2.10pm on Saturday, have arrested a 41-year-old woman from Stowmarket on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

Officers said the teenage boy was assaulted by another man during the attack, after which the suspect made off from the scene in a waiting car, believed to have had at least two other people inside it.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.

Detectives believe he was known to his assailant and so there is no wider threat to the community.

Officers arrested the 41-year-old woman in connection to the assault this afternoon, and she has been taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where she currently remains for questioning.

Police are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the incident. If you can help, contact South CID at Landmark House in Ipswich on 101, quoting reference: 65671/21.
