Officers were called to Tuberville Court, at about 4.45am on April 29, to reports that a dog walker had been attacked while walking in an alleyway, suffering head injuries as a result.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “An ambulance was called to treat the victim for a gash on his head, and police later carried out enquiries at houses in the area, but no-one reported having seen or heard anything at the time of the incident. Investigations are continuing.”
