A MAN was hospitalised after being attacked with a glass bottle on Sunday, July 31.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to the serious assault which also involved another man.

The incident happened at around 5.15am when two friends, both aged 22, were attacked by a group of three men close to an underpass in the car park near the Point cinema between Avebury Boulevard and Midsummer Boulevard.

This followed an earlier verbal altercation in the nearby Groove nightclub.

Both men were hit with a bottle; one man suffered minor injuries and the other man suffered a fractured skull and a bleed on the brain and was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital. He was discharged on Tuesday.

Det Con John Swallow of Milton Keynes CID said: “This was a very serious attack which was potentially life threatening for this young man. We would urge anyone who may have any information or may have witnessed this attack to come forward.”

The attackers have been described as a white man who was about 5ft 8in, slim, aged about 21, with short light brown messy looking hair. He was wearing a grey top and a scarf, and three-quarter length chino trousers.

The second man was black, thin, aged about 21, 5ft 10in. His hair was a short afro style on top and very short around the sides of his head. He was wearing a grey T-shirt with a waistcoat over the top.

The third attacker is described a black man, about 6ft tall, slim with a shaved head. He wore a short-sleeved red top with white horizontal stripes and jeans.
