A 16-year-old girl has been charged with attempted murder following an attack in Cardiff which left a man with life-threatening injuries.  The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is one of three people being held by police after a 54-year-old man was rushed to hospital following a serious assault in Bute Park, in the Creigiau area of Cardiff, at around 1am on July 20.  The girl is due to appear at Cardiff Youth Court later today over the attack which took place just yards from Cardiff Castle.  A police investigation is now under way and officers are appealing for witnesses who may have been walking near the park in the early hours of July 20.  Following the attack, the 54-year-old man was rushed to University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, where he remains in a life-threatening condition.  His family have been updated and are being supported by specially-trained family liaison officers.  Jason Edwards, 25, and Lee William Strickland, 36, appeared at Cardiff Magistrates' Court on Monday charged with attempted murder.  Following the attack, the 54-year-old man was rushed to University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, where he remains in a life-threatening condition.  His family have been updated and are being supported by specially-trained family liaison officers.  Jason Edwards, 25, and Lee William Strickland, 36, appeared at Cardiff Magistrates' Court on Monday charged with attempted murder.  'While this latest arrest is another positive development, we are still appealing for information.
