A 39-YEAR-OLD man from Fairford has been arrested on suspicion of assault, occasioning actual bodily harm after an incident in Cirencester. 

Last Friday at about 11pm, a 17-year-old girl suffered a head injury after allegedly being struck with a baseball bat in Melmore Gardens.

She received a two-inch cut to her forehead and was taken to Swindon Hospital for treatment, but her injuries were not found not to be serious. 

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police on 101.
