A 44-year-old Southampton man was pulled from his car and seriously assaulted by six men on Tuesday.
The man rang the police at 12:15pm while driving to say he was being followed by another car. His car was stopped by the six attackers at the junction of South Road and Priory Road, where he was dragged from his car. The assault left him with grazes and bruises on nearly every part of his body.
Six men were arrested on suspicion of assault, but all six have been released on bail until October 7th.
Considering the time of day, PC Victoria Blake believes “many people are likely to have been in the area”. Any witnesses are urged to contact her at Southampton Central on 101.
