A man received stab wounds following a fight outside a pub and a takeaway stall in Portishead.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary launched an appeal for witnesses to come forward this morning (Monday) as two men were assaulted during an incident on October 19 just after midnight.
Police said two men – one in a red polo shirt and the other in an orange coat – were involved in a fight outside The Old Mill pub in High Street.
A force spokesman said: “The man in the orange coat suffered stab wounds to his arm and ear during the incident.
“Both had been in the pub with groups of friends beforehand.
“About 10 minutes later the same two men were seen fighting, along with a third man in a grey/green top, outside a kebab van at the junction of Old Mill Road and Wyndham Way.
“The man in the red polo shirt ended up on the ground and was stamped on by one of the other men.
“We are appealing anyone who might have seen any incident involving the man in the red polo shirt and the man in the orange coat either inside or outside the Old Mill pub that night.
“We also are looking for anyone who might have seen the altercation near the kebab van. What did they see? Who else was there?
“Anyone with information should call 101 and quote reference 5217238545.”
A 31-year-old man and a 36-year-old man have been arrested and released under investigation.
