Dated: 19 May 2010
Police are appealing for help to piece together how two men received injuries in Newcastle.
The two 21-year-old men suffered facial and head injuries which needed treatment at Newcastle General Hospital.
It's believed they suffered their injuries at around 2am on Sunday May 2 in the area to the rear of Central Station in the city centre, at Clavering Place between Forth Street and Hanover Street.
There has been suggestion that the pair were involved in an altercation with a person or people in an unknown make of car in the area.
The injured men are described as being in their early 20s, white, one wearing a black jumper and blue jeans, and the other wearing a striped multi-coloured shirt, black coat and jeans.
One suffered a wound to the back of his head which required staples as well as a swollen cheek, while the other suffered a sore cheek.
Detective Constable Andy Kelsall said: "We're trying to piece together exactly what's happened and how these two men have come about their injuries. Many enquiries have so far been carried out and the investigation is ongoing.
"There's a suggestion they may have been assaulted and as such we're appealing for any witnesses who were in this area at the time or who has any information about what happened to get in touch with us."
