Latest on probe into bloody attack in Boultham Park

A man in his 50s was injured

Three men have been released on bail after a bloody fight in Boultham Park which left a man in his 50s injured.

Police were called just before 7.30pm during the evening of Thursday, July 4 after receiving reports of an altercation between a number of people.

People at the scene reported someone had been stabbed, but police are still yet to confirm this. The victim’s injuries are not believed to be serious.

Police confirmed on Monday that two men in their 20s and a man in his 40s have since been released on bail. A man and two women, all in their 30s, have been released with no further action.
