A MAN has been left with serious facial injuries after a late night attack in a town centre.
Three men were arrested after the serious incident in the Brunswick Road area of Buckley in the early hours of Saturday.
Police are urging witnesses to come forward.
Emergency services rushed to the scene at about 3am, where two men were being treated for their injuries.
One of the men, who is in his 20s, was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital with serious facial injuries.
The incident led to an area of the town centre being cordoned off, with house to house inquiries taking place as police investigated.
A police spokesman said: “A man in his 20s sustained serious facial injuries and a second man, who is also in his 20s, sustained minor injuries following an incident during the early hours of Saturday morning in the Brunswick Road area.
“Both men were taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital for treatment.”
Three men, aged 25, 22 and 21, were arrested on suspicion of wounding and have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
DS Kevin Bowden, of Mold CID, said: “The incident happened at a time when many people would have been making their way home from a night out and therefore it is possible some may have been in the vicinity of Brunswick Road and witnessed the incident.
“I’d like to hear from those people and urge them and anyone else who has information to contact officers at Mold CID.”
Town centre workers and shoppers said police were on Parkside off Brunswick Road for much of Saturday morning following the incident.
Sgt Andy Massey, of North Wales Police, said no weapons were used during the attack.
“CID are investigating,” he told the Leader.
“Suspects have been questioned, arrests have been made and inquiries are continuing.”
A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said they were called at 3.05am on Saturday.
“Two men in their early 20s had injuries,” said the spokesman.
“One casualty was treated at the scene for minor facial injuries. The other casualty was taken to the Maelor with head injuries.”
Anyone with information should contact DS Bowden or officers at Mold CID on 101, or call Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.
