Search for man after two in­jured

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are look­ing for a man after a 21-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were at­tacked in We­ston-su­per-Mare.

Po­lice of­fi­cers were called to Alexan­dra Pa­rade in the town in the early hours of Sun­day. Two males had been in­jured and had to be treated.

A 21-year-old sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries and was taken to hospi­tal, where he re­mains un­der treat­ment.

Po­lice said his in­juries were not life threat­en­ing or life chang­ing. The 17-year-old boy was also treated at the scene by paramedics

Two peo­ple have al­ready been ar­rested in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent, but of­fi­cers are now search­ing for a third across We­ston­super-Mare.

The two ar­rested – a man, 48 and woman, 26 – are in cus­tody.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Richard Hors­fall said: “We’re at the very early stage of our in­ves­ti­ga­tion into this in­ci­dent and are still look­ing es­tab­lish ex­actly what hap­pened.

“We have iden­ti­fied a third per­son wanted in con­nec­tion with the of­fence through CCTV and are cur­rently search­ing for him.

“While we don’t be­lieve the man poses a risk to the pub­lic, due to the level of vi­o­lence used in the in­ci­dent, armed of­fi­cers are as­sist­ing with this search as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure.”
