Three possible suspects identified following an appeal for a serious assault on Commercial Street, Newport


Last month, we appealed for information following a serious assault along Commercial Street in Newport.

The offence occurred sometime between 7:40pm and 8:10pm on Thursday 16th February 2017.

A man was violently assaulted and was taken to the Royal Gwent Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries following the incident.

Three males were arrested on suspicion of Affray relating to this offence and are currently on police bail until 06/04/17.

However, officers were keen to trace a further three males, who were also captured on CCTV.


Following the appeal many of you came forward and as a result three suspects have been identified and enquiries are on-going.


Officers would like to thank those who came forward to give us names and information.
