TWO men have been arrested and charged following a serious assault in Peebles.

A 49 year-old man sustained facial injuries during the incident outside the County Bar on Sunday, September 11. 

The man had challenged three males about their behaviour towards his wife while they had all been inside the bar, at which point the group attacked him. 

The victim was then taken to Borders General Hospital.

The pair aged 25 and 24 will appear in court at a later date. 

Police would like to thank all of those members of the public who came forward with information during this inquiry.
