A Bury St Edmunds Teenager has been charged with murder following a stabbing in Ipswich.

The 17 year old, who we can’t name for legal reasons, was arrested on Wednesday. 

He is charged in connection with the murder of 32 year old Daniel Saunders from Surrey who was found to have a single stab wound to the abdonmen. Officers were called to Turin Street just after 1.50pm on Sunday 16 December to reports that a man had been stabbed.

The teen due in court later today (Friday).

Three people – two men, aged 44 and 39, and a woman aged 31 – who were arrested in connection with the incident on Sunday 16 December, are due to answer police bail tomorrow.

Detectives are continuing to appeal for anyone who was in the vicinity of Turin Street, Kenyon Street and Wherstead Road on Sunday 16 December, and witnessed any suspicious persons or activity, to make contact. This includes anyone driving through the area who has a dash cam fitted in their vehicle.

Officers are also keen to trace a woman who stopped at the scene shortly after the attack took place and assisted the victim. She is described as aged in her 30s or 40s, speaking with a local accent and driving a people carrier with a sliding door.
