A man is in hospital having suffered injuries after being beaten up for more than ten minutes – three men have been arrested.
The victim was said to have been kicked, jumped on and stamped on during a sustained attack in Lime Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday 12 May).
Officers arrested the men at the scene on suspicion of grievous bodily harm shortly after receiving a report that people were fighting at around 1.35am.
Detective Sergeant Dave Prest, of Nottinghamshire’s Criminal Investigation Department, said: “This was a violent attack which has seen a man taken to hospital where he is being treated for injuries which thankfully are not life threatening or altering.
“Response teams were quickly at the scene and made swift arrests. We have been conducting enquiries through the night and the three men remain in custody while our investigation continues.
“This violence will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire.”
