Police are continuing investigations at an address in Wyverstone following the discovery of a number of weapons at a home earlier this week.

Officers initially received a report on April 13 that a woman in her 40s had been assaulted at a property on March 27.

Police attended the address and a 49-year-old man from the Stowmarket area was arrested on suspicion of assault.

As part of the investigation, police carried out a search warrant at the property and discovered a number of weapons.

Subsequently James Arnold, a 49-year-old man of Potash Road in Wyverstone, was charged with two counts of assault and four counts of possession of a prohibited weapon and appeared before Ipswich Magistrates Court earlier today, April 21.

As part of the ongoing enquiry, and as a precautionary measure in order to ensure some items found at the premises are safe, a controlled explosion is due to be carried out in the area, which was scheduled to take place at 4pm.

Police have already informed immediate neighbours about this action.

A cordon remains in place and officers will remain on scene overnight.

A 45-year-old woman from the Stowmarket area, who was arrested on suspicion of possession of a prohibited firearm, was interviewed by officers and has now been bailed to return to police on May 21.
