TWO men were left with head injuries in two separate incidents in Harrogate last weekend.

In the first attack, a 35-year-old man was assaulted in Rehab in Parliament Street in the early hours of Saturday morning, but was not seriously injured.

Police said he then left the club, but was again attacked by the same person in Oxford Street, leaving him with serious head injuries. Officers were called to the scene just after 4am and the man was taken to hospital, before being released over the weekend.

A 31-year-old man was arrested and has since been released on conditional bail. Police continued their investigations in the area during Saturday morning, with part of Oxford Street cordoned off.

A second, unconnected incident happened just before midnight on Sunday, October 31.

A fight broke out at a private party in Parliament Street, leaving a 19-year-old man with head injuries, although they were not thought to be serious. An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of wounding and has been bailed by police while inquiries continue.
