Man attacked from behind and hospitalised in Belfast

A man is in hospital after being seriously assaulted in north Belfast on Saturday.

Detectives are appealing for information following the attack in the Donegall Park Avenue area.

Detective Constable Whyte said: “Shortly before 10.00pm it was reported that a man was attacked from behind and received injuries to the head, face and arms resulting in him being hospitalised. 

"Soon after the victim was assaulted it is believed that a large crowd of males were seen running off in the direction of Downview Gardens.
