By Staff Reporter

A man in his 50s has been treated in hospital for serious injuries after he was attacked by a gang in south Belfast.

It happened on Monday in the Donegall Road area sometime between 1am and at 2.10am, when the attack was reported to police.

A PSNI spokesman said the man sustained injuries to his head, face and broken ribs, and was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

"A short time later, police arrested a 39-year-old man in the Donegall Road area on suspicion of grievous bodily harm. He's since been released on bail pending further enquiries," the detective added.

"I want to make a number of appeals today. Were you in the Donegall Road area between 1am and 2.10am on Monday? Did you witness the assault? Did you see three males acting suspiciously in the area?

"If you have information you believe may assist our investigation, please call detectives at Musgrave on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 74 of 05/11/18."
