"As part of our enquiries, a 17-year-old female and an 18-year-old male were arrested on suspicion of offences, including assault occasioning actual bodily harm. They have both since been released on bail, pending further enquiries. 

"Our investigation continues as we work to establish exactly what happened and who was involved. In particular, we want to hear from anyone who was in Strabane town centre last night, between 10:45pm and 11:15pm, and who witnessed what happened to call us.
