Following a racially-motivated attack on an NHS worker, officers have arrested a third man on suspicion of attempted murder.

Last month, a 21-year-old musician known as Kdogg or K, was brutally attacked after finishing work at a nearby Southmead Hospital in Bristol. The incident took place at about 4:30 pm on 22 July when a man deliberately drove his car at the NHS worker in a racist attack.

In connection with the incident, police officers arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of murder on Sunday, a day after the detention of two 18-year-old men.

Superintendent Andy Bennett, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: “The dedicated team investigating this incident are committed to carrying out a thorough investigation and I hope this third arrest provides further reassurance to the victim and the wider community about how seriously we’re treating this incident.”

Kdogg sustained serious injuries, including a broken leg, nose and cheekbone. The musician said that he was “lucky to be alive”.  “I don`t want this to happen to anyone else, I want people to be aware”, he said.

The racist-aggravated attack prompted protesters to march on Monks Park Avenue on Sunday with placards in support of K and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Simeon Mccarthy, the victim`s friend created a fundraising page which has received more than £45,000 in donations, and has been supported by the band Massive Attack.
