Man in critical condition after brutal Concert Square assault
The victim was found in an alleyway near to Level and Walkabout
Two teenage men are currently being questioned over an attack that left a man fighting for his life in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The 24-year-old victim remains in critical condition after being found with severe head injuries in an alleyway near to Level nightclub.
Two 19-year-old men voluntarily turned themselves in to the police on the night and were subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault.
Detectives have recovered CCTV of the incident and are wanting to trace potential witnesses, including three women who were in the vicinity of the alleyway, off Fleet Street, at around 2.20am.
Detective Inspector Matthew Kerr, said: “This was a nasty attack on a man who had been enjoying a night out.
“He sustained serious injuries as a result of the attack and is currently in a critical condition in hospital.
“We are absolutely determined to find the people responsible but we need the public’s help in piecing together what happened before and after the altercation.”
Kerr added: “Concert Square was particularly busy at that time and I would also appeal to anyone who was out and about at this time and think they saw anything to contact us with that information.
“I’d also like to reassure people incidents like this are rare and neighbourhood officers will be increasing patrols in the area.”
