Two Arrested After Man's Ear Bitten Off

Two men have been arrested by police investigating an assault in Portsmouth in which a man had his ear partly bitten off.

 The 20-year-old and an 18-year-old were detained in connection with the assault on the seafront last Friday.

The younger was questioned on suspicion of wounding with intent, the older of the two on suspicion of attempted wounding with intent.

The victim, 36, was sat in a shelter between the life guard station and the Pyramids around 5pm, Friday, April 8.
