Members of a group of youths who attacked a man in Isleworth may have unwittingly contacted a potentially fatal disease. The incident took place on Saturday 2nd July on South Street at around 23.45.

A 40 year old white male was riding his bicycle when he was approached by the youths. For reasons that remain unclear they assaulted him resulting in him bleeding from a cut lip. The man has informed police that he has Hepititus B which can be spread through cuts.
