Three men were charged last night following our investigations into the assault of a man on Newland Avenue, Hull on Monday 8 March.
The men were arrested soon after the incident at a nearby flat in Pearson Park.
As this is an ongoing police investigation we cannot provide detailed information in relation to the circumstances of the incident. However, we are pleased to say that the victim is now recovering from his injuries.
We believe this to be an isolated assault, with no wider threat to the public and not connected to any other incident in Hull in the last 24 hours.
The three men are due to appear at Hull Magistrates Court today charged with wounding with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Two of the men are further charged with the possession of an offensive weapon, namely a plank of wood and a hammer.
