TWO men were arrested in the early hours of today, Saturday, April 25, after three people were taken to hospital following an incident outside a Northwich nightspot.
Cheshire police spokeswoman Jacqui Hanson said: “At around 1am an altercation took place outside Madisons nightclub on High Street. It is then thought the disputing parties went to the rear of the club, on Weaver Street, where a number of people were assaulted.
“As a result a 55-year-old local man suffered serious head injuries. He was initially taken to Leighton Hospital, but subsequently transferred to North Staffordshire Hospital, where his condition remains serious.
“A 49-year-old local man suffered injuries to his arm and is also at North Staffordshire Hospital for treatment. A 23-year-old local man was also injured, but was treated at hospital and subsequently released.
“Two men were arrested on suspicion of assault, a 41-year-old man from Northwich and a 46-year-old man from Warrington. Both are continuing to help police with their enquiries, which remain ongoing.”
