A second 19-year-old man has been arrested today (December 11) in connection with the alleged serious assault of a 23-year-old male earlier this week.

The assault took place near Tesco between North Bridge and Church View at around midday on Monday.

A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault earlier this week and bailed pending further inquiries.

CCTV images showed the man wore a distinctive Adidas jacket, which police believe had the words ‘Dark Side Imperials’ emblazoned on the back and the letters D and S on the front.

The victim remains in hospital in a critical condition.

Officers continue to appeal for witnesses to the incident.
