Two people - arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in Leicester - have been released on bail.

A 26-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were both detained on Friday but they've since been bailed pending further enquiries.

It's after police received reports of a 23-year-old man had been struck by a white BMW in Canon Street at around 9:45 on Thursday 7th February.

Leicestershire Police say it's reported a piece of masonry had been thrown through the window of a house in nearby Glendon Street. 

The man was hit when three people - who were inside the property - left to see what had happened.

The victim was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he remains in a stable condition. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening but could be life-changing.

Detective Inspector Tim Lindley, from Leicestershire Police, said: “Despite the arrests our investigations into the assault remain ongoing. I’d ask anyone who may live or work in the area of Canon Street to think back to Thursday evening and contact us if they have any information that may assist us. Any information you have, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, could help with our investigation.”
