Two members of the public were allegedly assaulted with bricks in Stevenage earlier this month, leading Herts police to launch an investigation.

The incident occurred in an alleyway off High Street in the old town, near the Coach and Horses, at around 10.15pm on Saturday, July 4.

It is alleged that a man had been approached by two men that evening and was struck on the head with a brick.

He was later released with no further action taken.

Police say their enquiries are continuing at this time.
