A student was hospitalised after an attack by three other students early on Saturday 22nd February at Romero Halls on Archers Road left him with a laceration wound to his neck.
The 19-year-old male victim was attacked as he left a female student’s room at around 2:30 am. Two men and a woman were arrested in connection with the attack, all of them also 19 years of age.
The laceration to his neck is believed to have been caused by a broken bottle. He managed to cycle home before realising the extent of his injury. The bleeding from the wound required hospital treatment.
Emergency cleaners were dispatched to the halls to clear up a quantity of blood from the corridor and stairs, and they remained there until early Saturday evening.
The three arrested have been bailed until April 9th while enquiries continue. As of yet, nobody has been charged with anything.
The police are currently investigating and would appeal for anyone with information or witnesses to call Detective Constable Claire Ratcliffe at Shirley CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
