The assault occurred just before 1.30am on Saturday, May 15, in Market Place, when a clash arose between two men.

One of the men, aged in his 20s, was hit with a full bottle of vodka, which subsequently smashed.

As a result, the victim suffered cuts to his face and an injury to one of his eyes. He was taken to hospital for treatment.
