A 17-year-old boy from Cosham was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, and has been released from custody but remains under investigation.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the incident to come forward. 

Officers are particularly keen to trace a man who we believe witnessed the incident but boarded a bus prior to police arrival.

The incident took place on a busy main road near a pub and bus stop, so there may be other people who saw what happened.
