FIVE teenagers were yesterday in police custody after a 20-year-old man was left with head injuries in an Abingdon assault.
Thames Valley Police said the victim was attacked by a group of six or seven males at about 2.45am yesterday near the taxi rank in Ock Street.
The attackers ran off towards Conduit Road after the assault and police said one of them was wearing bright red or orange trousers.
Police cordoned off an area around a property in Ock Street for most of the day.
Central Ambulance Service staff were called to help the victim and spokesman James Underway said the patient was taken to Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital with “fairly severe” but not life-threatening injuries.
The suspects, two aged 17 and three aged 16, were yesterday in custody after being arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and affray.
