A man in his 20s was left with a serious wound to his back after being attacked by two men. The incident took place in Stokes Croft, near the junction with City Road on Friday (November 18) at around 7.40pm.
Police say the victim was struck with a weapon, leaving him with a significant wound to his back that required hospital treatment. Detectives investigating said it was a serious assault and are encouraging witnesses with information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Su Parker said: “A 25-year-old man was yesterday arrested in connection with this assault. He remains in custody. We know the two men ran away before leaving the area in a black Mercedes in the direction of the city centre.”
CCTV enquiries are being carried out. At this time, there is no evidence to suggest there is any wider risk to the public. DI Parker added: “Given the time of day this happened, we expect there would have been a number of people in the area and would urge witnesses or motorists driving along the road at the time who may have relevant dashcam footage showing the suspects, to get in touch.
“They can do so by calling us on 101 and quoting reference number 5222277925 , or alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
