Two teenagers arrested after man is seriously assaulted in Wellingborough

Two teenagers have been arrested after a man was seriously assaulted in Wellingborough yesterday evening (Thursday, June 21).

The 17-year-old's are currently being questioned. The man’s injuries are not life-threatening.

We are investigating an incident that happened last night in the Wellingborough area in which a man was seriously assaulted.

We're still trying to establish what exactly happened but I'd be interested in speaking to anyone who may have heard a gunshot in the area between 7pm and 8pm or anyone who witnessed anything suspicious around the time.

Finally, I'd like to reassure the public that we believe this to be an isolated incident and there is no wider danger to members of the public."
