A man was injured during a disturbance in Downham Market last night (Monday).

Officers were called to the Railway Road area shortly before 8pm following reports of a disturbance in the street involving a number of men.

Armed officers were dispatched to the area following reports that people were in possession of weapons and arrived on scene to find a man with neck injuries in nearby Brickfields Lane.

Enquiries led officers to arrest a man in his 20s who was detained at the train station. He was taken into custody at King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre where he was questioned.

The injured man, also aged in his 20s, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with serious injuries, which are believed to be non-life threatening.

Police believe those involved in the disturbance were known to each other and that there was no threat to the wider community.

Anyone who witnessed the incident should contact officers at King’s Lynn CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
