Police continue to appeal for information to serious assault in St Katherine’s Gardens, Northampton

August 9, 2018

Police investigating a serious assault in Northampton on Tuesday evening (August 7) are continuing to appeal for information.

Three men were arrested following the attack, which happened in St Katherine’s Gardens, St Katherine’s Street at about 6.30pm.

Detectives have been granted an extension from the Magistrate's Court to continue to question a 23-year-old man from London, who remains in police custody.

No further action is being taken in connection with the assault, against two other men, aged 24 and 19, who were also arrested on Tuesday. 

The victim, a man in his 30s, suffered serious injuries and remains in hospital in a stable condition. 

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Rymarz said: “This was shocking incident which happened in a busy area in broad daylight, in which a man has suffered serious, potentially life-changing injuries. 

“While we have made arrests in connection with the assault, this is still very much an ongoing inquiry.

“We are currently treating the incident as a potential hate crime, and we have a team of experienced detectives working on the investigation as well as local officers carrying out patrols and conducting inquiries in the town. 

“I would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident, who we haven’t already spoken to, or anyone who has information about those involved, to contact us as soon as possible and help bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, if they would prefer to remain anonymous, they can call independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
