Police chief’s knife warning

A POLICE chief has voiced his disappointment following a stabbing in Sudbury town centre.

Inspector Paul Crick, of Sudbury Police, said that the incident in Gaol Lane last Friday night showed people were still ignoring warnings about the dangers of carrying weapons.

“It is very disappointing people are continuing to carry knives despite the dangers,” he said.

“In many cases you can’t go back from a knife attack, the injuries can be fatal or life-changing.”

Mr Crick said that even though incidents of this nature were rare in the town he was unhappy that a dispute had led to a stabbing.

The victim of the stabbing, Chris Greenidge, from Great Cornard, received knife wounds to his stomach and right arm.

The 31-year-old was released from Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, early last week after undergoing reconstructive surgery on his arm, although it is not known if the arm will make a full recovery.

Luke Cornwall, of Hawthorns Road, Great Cornard, was arrested and charged in connection with the attack.

The 28 year old is currently on bail on the condition that he does not return to Sudbury or Great Cornard and sticks to a 9pm to 6am curfew.
