A MAN has been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged assault in Helensburgh town centre last month in which two visitors to the town were hurt.

The unprovoked attack took place in James Street on Saturday, August 24 when two men visiting Helensburgh from England sustained minor injuries.

Two male victims, aged 50 and 53, were allegedly assaulted by three men near to the junction with West Clyde Street.

Extensive CCTV work has since resulted in the identification of the two males wanted in connection with the incident, and a 25-year-old from East Princes Street was arrested and charged last week.

Police say an enquiry to trace and charge a second male involved, a 30-year-old local resident, is ongoing.
