A MAN has been arrested in connection with an attack on a York resident in the early hours of this morning.
The attack happened in Crichton Avenue, just after midnight, when a 36-year-old man asked a group of youths to move away from a car parked in the street.
The victim was then hit on the head with a piece of wood, causing a cut which needed medical treatment.
North Yorkshire Police arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of wounding with intent shortly after the incident, and he currently remains in custody.
Detective Constable Emma Newton, of York CID, said: “If you were in the area at the time and witnessed the incident, I urge you to contact the police straight away.
“I am particularly keen to speak to any other members of the group who were not involved in the assault and ask them to get in touch.”
Anyone with information should contact York CID on 101, email email@example.com or phone Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
