Police were called at 9.12pm on Monday, September 5, to Jubilee Street about damage being caused to cars in the street by a group of youths, at least seven strong.

The youths were challenged by two men, one in his 60s, who was seriously assaulted and one in his 40s who was also assaulted and suffered minor injuries. We believe a weapon may have been used but keeping an open mind.

The former suffered serious but not life threatening injuries and remains in Peterborough City Hospital.
