Around 1:30am on Sunday 27 March 2014, a 42-year-old man was seriously assaulted by two men, one of whom had a weapon, in an unprovoked attack outside Ma Kelly’s bar at the junction of Talbot Road and Dickson Road in the town centre.
As a result of this attack, the victim received head injuries that required hospital treatment at the time.
Two men have been arrested and bailed in relation to this attack, but the detectives investigating the incident are now appealing for anyone who witnessed the attack to come forward to help them clarify exactly what happened.

“Therefore, we would appeal for anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed this attack to please come forward with any information they have.
“We would particularly like to speak to two women we know witnessed the attack, although we would also appeal to any taxi drivers at the nearby taxi rank who may have witnessed this attack to also come forward with any information they may have.”
