THE PSNI has just released details of a brutal assault earlier this week.
A gang of five people attacked a 20-year-old man in the Silverstream area of north Belfast on Wednesday, December 26.
The assault took place sometime between 11pm and 11.30pm but has just been reported.
Up to five people – one with a suspected gun – are said to have got out of an old-type Mitsubishi 4×4 before targeting the victim.
