Assault in Burnley nightclub

Police lights

10:20am 4th January 2013

Police are appealing for information after a man was assaulted by two other men at a nightclub in Burnley.  

Sometime between 1am and 2am on Sunday 9 December 2012, a 30 year old man was involved in an argument with two men at the Rewind Club, above Walkabout, on Hammerton Street.  

The argument escalated and the 30 year old was assaulted by the two men. He was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital with a fractured cheekbone as well as a cut above his eye which required stitches.   Both offenders are described as white, of slim build and in their early 20s.  

Sergeant Louise Darcy said: "This assault resulted in some very nasty injuries and we need to find the two men responsible. If you were in the club that night and have any information which you think could help us then I would ask you to contact police."  

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
