Wiltshire Police Officers investigating an assault in Chippenham, which left a man with a fractured eye socket, have made an arrest.
According to police sources, the incident happened at approximately 2am on Saturday 22 August. The victim, a man in his 20s, was walking along Bath Road near to the Esso Garage when three people got out of a taxi and assaulted him on the garage forecourt.
Yesterday, officers arrested a man in his 20s from Chippenham on suspicion of GBH. He has been interviewed at Melksham custody and has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Det Insp Tom Straker said: "This was a nasty incident which appears to be unprovoked. We've been carrying out extensive enquiries since it was initially reported and we've so far arrested one man on suspicion of GBH. We are continuing with our enquiries and would urge anyone with information to get in touch."
