POLICE have arrested a teenager after a man was stabbed at a takeaway in Yate.

The man needed stitches after the assault, which police are describing as an "isolated incident".

Officers were called to Yate Kebab and Pizza in Abbotswood at 10.45pm on November 14 after reports that a customer had been attacked.

An Avon and Somerset police spokesperson said: "The ambulance service attended to treat a customer – a man in his 50s - who suffered two puncture wounds.

"He needed hospital treatment including seven stitches for his injuries.

"A young man aged 17 was arrested just before midnight, on suspicion of wounding with intent.

"He was later released on police bail with conditions including living at an address away from Yate and not returning to the town."

Police say their neighbourhood team is carrying out targeted patrols of the area to reassure the community.

Enquiries into the incident are still underway and police called on anyone with information that could help the investigation to call 101 and quote the crime reference number 5221 268 643.
