POLICE have arrested two men from Tenbury Wells on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm after an assault in Hereford which closed a road for several hours.

Holme Lacy Road was closed for more than three hours on Saturday evening after the incident which left two men injured.

Detective Inspector Chris Percival said officers are continuing to investigate what happened in Holme Lacy Road at around 8.15pm when several vehicles were damaged.

A 27 and 30 year-old, both from Tenbury Wells, have been arrested for grievous bodily harm.

“Several vehicles had been damaged, and two young men attended hospital, the injuries are not thought to be life threatening," he said.

“I want to reassure the community this is believed to be an isolated incident and we have two men in custody in connection with the incident."

One man, aged 17, from Hereford was arrested and subsequently released with no further investigation.

The road was closed from the Co-op to the mini roundabout at the junction with Hoarwithy Road and Chesnut Drive.

A silver Hyundai hatchback was seen parked with its hazard lights on near to the roundabout, within the police road closure, at 10pm.

Anyone with information has been asked to call police on 101, or via its website, quoting incident number 643i of 27 March.
