A MAN sustained serious injuries and was knocked unconscious after being set upon by a gang in Melbourn.
The 20-year old victim is in Addenbrooke's Hospital following the incident, which occurred in Melbourn High Street, near The Dolphin pub, on Saturday. His injuries are serious but not life threatening, and he is said to be in a stable condition.
It is thought the victim got into an argument with a man and woman, and as a result a large group of people gathered. The man was then assaulted by a number of the group and knocked unconscious.
Officers from Cambridgeshire Police spent the weekend conducting house-to-house enquiries in the village, while crime scene investigators have carried out an extensive search of the scene.
