Detectives have issued CCTV images of three people who could have witnessed an assault in Vauxhall last weekend.
At around 10.30pm on Saturday 27 May, emergency services were called to Fulton Street following reports that a man had been found unconscious after being assaulted.
The victim, a man in his 50’s, was taken to hospital for treatment for his injuries and he remains in a critical condition.
Detectives have arrested two people, a 15-year-boy and a 22-year-old man, on suspicion of section 18 wounding with intent. Both suspects have been released on conditional bail.
However, the investigation is ongoing and detectives have issued images of a man and two women they believe may have witnessed the attack and could assist with their investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Roberts said: “Although we have made two arrests, our investigation into this incident continues.

“I am also appealing for the man and two women featured in the CCTV images to please contact us as we believe they have seen the assault and could help us with vital information to our continuing enquiries.
“I also ask any motorists who were in the area to please check your dashcam footage in case you have captured something which will assist in the investigation. Every piece of information or footage could be vital in establishing what happened.”
