Police are continuing to investigate after a man was stabbed in a town park.
The 18-year-old victim was with two other men in the park when they were approached by teenagers who attacked him and stole two bikes.
He was taken to hospital with serious head and back injuries.
Armed officers were deployed to the scene and enquiries led police to arrest two boys, aged 15 and 16, in nearby Crown Road and St Peters Road.
A third boy, aged 17, was arrested a few days later. All three have since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
A spokesman confirmed officers were still investigating and that no-one had been charged over the offence.
It is believed all the parties were to known to each other. Police described it as "a nasty assault."
