The incident is believed to have escalated with others allegedly becoming involved and the driver of the van sustaining a number of injuries.

It is believed that the incident took place at around 8:20pm on Thursday 19 November 2015 and police are now appealing for independent witnesses in order to establish the circumstances leading to the man becoming injured.

The three arrested, a 20 year old woman, a 22 year old man and a 45 year old man have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
