Four men have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a man was seriously assaulted and struck by a car in Armoy.
The 48 year old was attacked on Main Street shortly after 1 this morning.
Police say he was then hit by a car which was 'deliberately' driven onto the footpath.
It’s understood a number of bystanders were also assaulted in the incident.
The vehicle then fled but was tracked down a short time later on the Coolkeeran Road in Ballymoney.
Police say four suspects were found nearby.
Detective Sergeant Wallace said:
“This was a vicious and violent attack and the victim has been left with some serious injuries, including some to his head and face. I am appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have captured footage, whether on dashcam, CCTV or mobile phone, to get in touch with us by calling 101, quoting reference 115 18/08/19.”
