The 27-year-old man suffered injuries to his and leg and is currently still in hospital.

Det Con Andy Greenman of St Albans Local Crime Unit said: “This was a particularly nasty assault which occurred in the road causing the traffic to stop.

“We are aware that another person was assaulted moments before this, also in the middle of Victoria Street which also caused traffic to come to a standstill.

“I would like to appeal to the victim of the first assault, anyone else who was in the area at the time and saw what happened or anyone who has any information about the assaults to contact police.”

Anyone with information should call the non-emergency number 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
