The second assault happened at around 2.05am, during a disturbance outside licensed premises on the Old Portadown Road in Lurgan.

Sergeant Duncan McBain said: “We attended and a 40-year-old man had been assaulted. He sustained an injury to his head.

“We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed this assault or has information in relation to it. We can be contacted on Lurgan on 101, quoting ref: 141151114.”
