POLICE were called to reports of a man being assaulted in Wrexham town centre.

A North Wales Police spokesman told the Leader a call was received just before 3.50pm today reporting that a man had been assaulted in Regent Street near St Mark’s Road multi-storey car park.

A number of people reported seeing several police vehicles at either side of King Street around the time of the incident.
