One man has been charged with attempted murder and three others with aggravated assault after a 24-year-old man was assaulted with a machete at Strøget in Oslo last summer.

According to the indictment, the man who was assaulted was cut across the femoral artery, TV 2 reports. He was rushed to Ullevål hospital, where he remained hospitalized for one month.

“The injuries were so extensive that he had to amputate a leg. Since then, he has had a long stay at Sunnaa’s hospital. It has naturally been a very demanding time both physically and mentally,” the man’s lawyer, Jon Anders Hasle, told the channel.

The violent incident took place in the middle of the popular nightclub area Strøget in Oslo but was not captured by surveillance cameras, according to TV 2. Nine people were charged during the investigation of the case, and now charges have been brought against a total of four people.

The three who are charged with aggravated assault are between 19 and 22 years old, while a 21-year-old man is charged with attempted murder.
