Three men from Monmouth remain in custody as police continue their enquiry into an alleged assault.

A 43-year-old man from Poole was found unconscious at 1.15am Sunday morning, June 26 and was treated at the scene by police and paramedics.

He is still in the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff where he continues to receive treatment for what are described as serious injuries.

Three men – one aged 21 and two aged 19 – from the Monmouth area were arrested on suspicion of assault and are still in police custody.

It is understood that a large crowd of golfers from Bournemouth were staying at the Premier Inn Saturday night and were seen in the Green Dragon that evening. It is not known whether the victim was one of these men.

Detective Superintendent Nick Wilkie, the senior investigating officer, said:

“Our enquiries are continuing, and we’ve been able to remove the scene guard and Monnow Street has now reopened.

“Officers will be making further enquiries so it is possible that you may see ongoing police activity as part of this work.

“Please do not be alarmed and if you have any concerns, then please do stop and talk to us.

“We’re keen to hear from anyone who may have information or details that could assist our enquiry, particularly if you’ve not yet spoken to us.”

Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information, including CCTV or dashcam footage, from Monnow Street is asked to call 101 or send us a direct message on social media, quoting log reference 2200213333.
