Man Bailed After Pub Attack

Police investigating reports of public disorder outside a pub in Horndean have released a suspect on bail.

A 34-year-old man from Waterlooville was arrested at 2.15am on Saturday, February 18, 2012 on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm without intent. He was questioned in custody and then bailed until next month pending further enquiries.
Officers were called to the Colonial bar in Portsmouth Road at 1.41am on Saturday. A 33-year-old man from Fareham was taken to hospital with a head injury that is potentially serious. However, he remains stable at this time.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the possibility that this man was assaulted in Portsmouth Road.
Part of Portsmouth Road was closed until shortly after 1pm on Saturday, so potential evidence at the scene could be preserved and examined.

We would like to thank the public for their understanding and co-operation.
Further witnesses or anyone else with information can contact CID at Waterlooville police station by phoning 101. Information can be given anonymously by calling the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
