THREE men have been ar­rested fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous as­sault which left a 55-year-old man fight­ing for his life.

De­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent, which hap­pened near to Uxbridge sta­tion in the town cen­tre on Thurs­day last week, said the man re­mains in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Po­lice and London Am­bu­lance Ser­vice were called to Wind­sor Street, op­po­site the sta­tion, at around 9.40pm.

LAS sent a duty of­fi­cer, an am­bu­lance crew, a sin­gle re­spon­der in a car and London’s Air Am­bu­lance crew by car to the road to treat the man for a head in­jury.

He was de­scribed as se­ri­ously in­jured and was rushed to hos­pi­tal, where he re­mains.

A sec­tion of Wind­sor Street be­tween NatWest Bank and Har­ris and Hoole cof­fee shop was closed off with po­lice tape un­til the next morn­ing and foren­sics of­fi­cers were spot­ted at the scene.

A 48-year-old man and a 29-year-old man were ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of as­sault caus­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm the day after the at­tack.

They have been re­leased on bail and will re­turn to a west London po­lice sta­tion in early Novem­ber.

A third man, aged 55, was ar­rested on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 19 and taken to a west London po­lice sta­tion where he re­mains in cus­tody pend­ing fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

En­quiries are con­tin­u­ing and po­lice are still ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic for help.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call of­fi­cers from Hilling­don CID on 020 8246 1413.

To re­main anony­mous, call Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
