Police have launched a murder investigation after a 17-year-old boy was found stabbed and later died in hospital.
Detectives believe the incident was a “targeted attack” with witnesses saying the victim was walking back from nearby shops when he was attacked by two men on bicycles.
Witnesses said the attackers were joined by four to five other men before the assaulted continued. The group is then believed to have fled the scene.
Officers were alerted by paramedics at 4.50pm on Saturday to the incident on Packard Avenue.
An air ambulance and police helicopter were called but the teenager later died in Ipswich Hospital.
A 41-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and taken into custody for questioning.
Police are appealing to anyone with CCTV or dash-cam footage in the area of Queen’s Way, Packard Avenue, Rands Way or Kingsway, between 12pm and 7.45pm on Saturday, to come forward.
