Po­lice seek two men over vi­o­lent at­tack

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

THREE peo­ple ar­rested fol­low­ing a vi­cious at­tack on a man in Spring­wood have been re­leased pend­ing fur­ther en­quiries.

Po­lice and am­bu­lance crews were called to an ad­dress in Back Spring Street just be­fore 6am on Fri­day.

A 38-year-old man was found with se­ri­ous but not life-threat­en­ing head in­juries. He was taken to Leeds Gen­eral In­fir­mary for treat­ment.

Po­lice later ar­rested two men aged 29 and a 33-year-old woman on sus­pi­cion of as­sault.

A spokesman for West York­shire Po­lice said all three had since been re­leased while in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­tin­ued.

Neigh­bours re­ported hear­ing a drunken fra­cas in the early hours and a man was later heard to be mak­ing a “dread­ful moan­ing sound” out­side.

De­tec­tives cor­doned off a large part of the nor­mally quiet cul-de-sac as in­ves­ti­ga­tions got un­der­way.

Of­fi­cers said they be­lieved what hap­pened did not pose “any threat to the wider com­mu­nity.” DE­TEC­TIVES want to speak to these men about an early morn­ing at­tack in Hud­der­s­field town cen­tre.

Kirklees CID have re­leased CCTV im­ages in con­nec­tion with a vi­o­lent in­ci­dent near McDon­ald’s fast food restau­rant in John Wil­liam Street on Oc­to­ber 20.

It took place at 3.55am when two peo­ple were in­volved in an ar­gu­ment.

Dur­ing the row one of the in­di­vid­u­als was in­jured and knocked to the ground. An­other man who wit­nessed the in­ci­dent and at­tempted to in­ter­vene was also in­jured. Nei­ther of them was se­ri­ously hurt.

Det Con Lisa Saber­ton, of Kirklees CID, said: “We are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate this in­ci­dent and are is­su­ing pic­tures of two men who we wish to speak to in con­nec­tion with it. Any­one who recog­nises the men or who can as­sist the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is asked to con­tact Kirklees CID on 101 ref­er­enc­ing crime num­ber 13170487358.

“In­for­ma­tion can also be given to the in­de­pen­dent Crimestop­pers char­ity in to­tal anonymity on 0800 555 111.”

A 26-year-old man has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent and re­leased pend­ing fur­ther en­quiries.

A 20-year-old man was also ar­rested and re­leased with­out charge.

McDon­ald’s has been the fo­cus of dis­or­der and vi­o­lence in re­cent weeks and led to se­cu­rity be­ing stepped up at the restau­rant.

A 16-year-old boy was charged with man­slaugh­ter af­ter the death of Gra­ham Bell, 37, of Dal­ton, who suf­fered se­ri­ous head in­juries af­ter be­ing at­tacked out­side McDon­ald’s on Oc­to­ber 1.
