A MAN arrested over an attack on a 40-year-old man whose penis was severed, has been released without charge.

The victim, who has not been named by Cleveland Police, was found with serious injuries on the A66 in Middlesbrough early on March 13.

He spent almost a month in the town's James Cook University Hospital, some of it in an induced coma.

A force spokeswoman said a 22-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault had been released from police bail without charge.

She added inquiries were continuing into the attack and that the victim, who was now at home with his family, was continuing to assist detectives.

Anyone with information should contact Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestopeprs on 0800-555-111.
