DETECTIVES investigating the Paddock axe attack have arrested two men in connection with the incident.
A 27-year-old man suffered serious head injuries in the attack at a hand-car wash in Longroyd Lane on Monday morning.
A 24-year-old and 29-year-old were arrested and have now been bailed.
It is believed the car wash worker may have been targeted hours before the nasty attack after an altercation with men in a small black hatchback.
It is understood the vehicle cut through the car wash at the junction off Longroyd Lane while the victim was working.
There was an altercation before the men in the car made off.
Then at around 11.10am the worker was said to be ‘outnumbered’ in an attack. He is said to be in a stable condition at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Police enquires are ongoing.
