Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or has information in relation to it to contact them in Lurgan on 0845 600 8000. If you prefer to provide information without giving your details you can contact the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Police would also remind the public to be mindful of their conduct while under the influence of alcohol.
Sergeant McBain, Lurgan NPT, advised: “It only takes one punch to hurt or even kill another person. If people indulge in too much alcohol they can often find themselves acting in a manner which they normally wouldn’t.
“We do not want anyone to find themselves in a situation where they are out of their depth. We would ask everyone to drink responsibly and take a step back from any situation where you feel things are getting out of control.
“If you need assistance or advice, police are available by phoning 0845 600 8000.”
