Moments later the victim from Fareham was stabbed with a broken bottle. He received injuries to his neck and an arm. These were not believed to be life-threatening.
Police on patrol nearby intervened and arrested a man, also aged 25 and from Fareham, on suspicion of ABH. He was questioned and later bailed until 2 September pending further enquiries.
