"Both of the attackers are described as having shaved heads. One is understood to have been wearing a stripy shirt and the other a blue shirt," a PSNI spokeswoman said.

"(The victim) remains in hospital at this time where his condition is believed to be stable."

Detectives at Musgrave police station are investigating the assault.

They believe a number of people were in the High Street area at the time of the incident.
