The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update - By KEN MCER­LAIN ken.mcer­lain@pe­ter­bor­oughto­day.co.uk @Etken­m­cer­lain

A MAN suf­fered se­ri­ous fa­cial in­juries and needed hospi­tal treat­ment af­ter an “un­pro­voked” as­sault in­volv­ing two other men out­side a city night­club.

The 24-year-old vic­tim was leav­ing The Sol­stice night­club in North­min­ster at around 2.20am on Satur­day when the at­tack hap­pened.

A woman and two men were in­volved in the at­tack and po­lice are keen to hear from any wit­nesses who saw what hap­pened.

De­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gat­ing the as­sault have re­leased CCTV images of a man and a woman they wish to ques­tion in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent.

The as­sault hap­pened af­ter the vic­tim left the night­club fol­low­ing a night out in the city cen­tre.

Af­ter leav­ing the club he was ap­proached by a woman who en­gaged him in con­ver­sa­tion for a short while.

A man came over and tried to search the vic­tim’s pock­ets but then started punching him sev­eral times.

A sec­ond man then joined in the al­ter­ca­tion when the vic­tim tried to fight his orig­i­nal at­tacker off.

The vic­tim was then at­tacked again by one of the of­fend­ers as he re­turned to the club.

Fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent the of­fend­ers ran from the scene.

The vic­tim was taken to Peter­bor­ough City Hospi­tal by am­bu­lance for treat­ment to fa­cial in­juries.

A spokesman for Cam­bridgeshire po­lice said that the vic­tim suf­fered cuts and bruises to his face and is cur­rently re­cov­er­ing from his or­deal at home.

Po­lice are now ap­peal­ing for any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the as­sault or who recog­nises the man or woman in the CCTV images to come for­ward and help with their en­quiries.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Amanda Clarke said: “The vic­tim suf­fered se­ri­ous fa­cial in­juries as a re­sult of this un­pro­voked at­tack.

“I would urge any­one who recog­nises the peo­ple pic­tured to con­tact us as soon as pos­si­ble be­cause we be­lieve they may have vi­tal in­for­ma­tion to as­sist our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should call DC Clarke on 101 or Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555111. Spe­cial May Deals di­rect from Cam­bridge Air­port
