Police release CCTV images after a man was assaulted in a Southport nightclub


Detectives have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to after a man was assaulted in a Southport nightclub. 

The 26-year-old was in Alpine Bar, West Street at 2.20am on Sunday 13 December when a group of unknown males approached him and assaulted him. He was punched to the face, causing a cut to his lip which required stitches. He also required surgery to have his jaw realigned. 

Officers have now released CCTV images of two males who they believe could help them with their enquiries. 

Temporary Inspector Simon Owen said: “This was a particularly nasty and unprovoked assault on a man who had been out in Southport town centre shortly before Christmas. 

“There would probably have been a number of people in the nightclub at the time of the assault who may have seen what happened or saw the males leaving the area. 

“We would also ask the two males in the CCTV stills or anyone who knows of their identity to get in touch.” 

Anyone who has any information is asked to call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 3780 or the confidential Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
