We’re convinced a good number of people will have been in the Watson Road area of the town at the time of the incident and we would encourage anyone who witnessed the assault to come forward. We are hoping to speak to a man aged in his late twenties or early thirties in connection with this incident, as well as a young woman who was seen with that man and who we believe may have vital information that could help us to understand how these man sustained their injuries.”
