A man was stabbed and three others injured following an assault in Co Tyrone at the weekend.

It is believed that up to eight people tracked the group of three men and one woman as they left a bar in William Street, Dungannon, at around 1.20am on Sunday morning.

The group, who were all from Coalisland, were then attacked in Irish Street. During the assault a 36-year-old man was stabbed in the back.

Two other men received rib and head injuries and the woman suffered a minor hand injury.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
