Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

TWO PEO­PLE were ar­rested af­ter a man was in­jured with a knife on a busy shop­ping street in Lochgilp­head.

Po­lice re­ceived re­ports shortly be­fore 5pm on Fri­day Au­gust 18 of peo­ple fight­ing in the town’s main shop­ping thor­ough­fare, Ar­gyll Street.

Amid shop­pers and peo­ple mak­ing their way home from work for the week­end, po­lice attended the scene near the junc­tion of Ar­gyll Street and Lorne Street.

A 45-year-old man and a woman aged 42 were later found and ar­rested else­where in the town.

The man was charged with se­ri­ous as­sault and pos­ses­sion of a knife, while the woman was charged with as­sault. The male vic­tim of the al­leged as­sault re­ceived a knife wound, but po­lice con­firmed that the in­jury was not se­ri­ous or life-threat­en­ing.

A re­port was sub­mit­ted to the procu­ra­tor fis­cal, and the man and woman charged are due to ap­pear in court at a later date.
