A teenage boy arrested after a man was left with a serious head injury in a suspected samurai sword attack has been released on police bail.
The 17-year-old was held on suspicion of attempted murder after a 23-year-old man was found in a life-threatening condition at a property in Eastleigh, Hampshire, on Friday night.
He has been bailed until 19 January.
