The 27-year-old was attacked by another man at the junction of the Castlereagh Road and Euston Parade, at around 10.15pm on Wednesday. He sustained serious injuries.

A 25-year-old man and a woman aged 42 were detained by detectives investigating the serious assault on Friday.

Police are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him before 10.15pm in the area of Castlereagh Road.

The victim is approximately 6' tall, with short dark hair and was wearing blue jeans, red Nike Air Max trainers, and a cream Adidas hoodie with 'Adidas' crest on the left chest area.

"This was a life-threatening attack and police are keen that anyone with information makes contact with CID at Musgrave PSNI on 0845 600 8000," a PSNI spokesman said.
