Ipswich – Man arrested after burglary & trespass on the railway

Officers are continuing to question a man in connection with a burglary, assault and an incident on the railway line, all occurring in north Ipswich.

Police were called at 6.30pm last night, Monday 20 May, to reports that a man and a woman were involved in an altercation near to the railway bridge on Henley Road, before walking down towards the tracks.

A request was made to put a stop on trains using this section of the railway and officers located and detained two people just before 6.50pm. British Transport Police and Network Rail were also called out to assist.

Following initial concerns that one of the people involved could have been struck by a passing train, the air ambulance attended as a precaution.

The woman – aged in her 30s – had sustained a suspected broken or dislocated elbow and was taken to hospital for treatment where she currently remains. At this time, it is not believe her injuries are as a result of being struck by a train.

This incident is being linked to a walk-in burglary at a house on Westerfield Road, which occurred between 5pm and 5.30pm yesterday.

A 32-year-old was subsequently arrested on suspicion of burglary, assault, trespassing on the railway and possession of cannabis. He was taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where he remains for questioning.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact South CID at Landmark House on 101 quoting reference 28556/19.
