Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the two men were assaulted near the centre of town – leading to the closure of a busy junction.

Officers were called to the scene at 1.45am on Thursday to reports of a fight taking place in Bond Street, near the junction of Eagle Street.

Suspects used a metal pole and a wooden stick to assault the two victims – one taken to hospital after sustaining head injuries as a result of the incident, while the other received minor injuries.

Police believed an altercation had taken place between the two victims and a group of three men in Rope Walk before the assault.
