Detectives in Scunthorpe are appealing for information following a serious incident which happened during the early hours of Sunday 01 January 2012 on Spencer Avenue in Scunthorpe.
Two brothers aged 33 and 35-years-old were walking down an alley just off Spencer Avenue (seen right) when they were assaulted by two unknown males.
This resulted in the 33-year-old suffering a series of wounds thought to have been caused by a bladed weapon of some kind. He was treated at the scene before being taken to Scunthorpe General Hospitalwhere his condition continues to improve and he is in a stable condition at this time.
The 35-year-old suffered a broken nose and large wound on the back of his head after being punched and falling to the ground. He was also taken to hospital for treatment.
Detective Insp James Fairgrieve said: "This was a serious but seemingly isolated incident in which two brothers have received nasty injuries seemingly at the hands of two unknown males.
"An investigation into the circumstances which led to the incident is underway and we are very keen to speak to anyone who may have information relating to the incident or those involved."
This incident is being treated seriously and an investigation is underway as police try to establish the circumstances which led to the two brothers sustaining such serious injuries.
Any witnesses or anyone with information should contact either Humberside Police via 101 quoting crime ref 1883088 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers who will take your information anonymously on 0800 555 111.
