The 15-year-old, who was walking on Weatherall Street with two females at about 23:00 BST, suffered serious head injuries and is in hospital in Cardiff.

South Wales Police said a 25-year-old woman is under arrest but they still want to hear from witnesses.

In particular, they want to speak to the driver of a silver Audi TT seen in the area at the time.

Det Ch Insp Kath Pritchard said: "We have spoken to a number of people who were in the vicinity at the time the attack took place, but we are appealing to anyone who may have seen the suspect in the area of Weatherall or Seymour Street, either before the time of the incident or running from the area, to contact police as soon as possible."

Anyone with information can call South Wales Police on 101.
