Officers were called to Burford Road, Radford, at around 12.15am on Tuesday (5 July 2022), following reports that someone had been attacked.
A 57-year-old man had to be taken to hospital for treatment after sustaining facial injuries that aren’t at this stage believed to be life-altering.
Police arrested a 43-year-old man shortly after the incident on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
He remains in police custody.
