Police continue search for night club attacker

John Freeman
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a student was hit in the face by a bottle in a Lancaster nightclub.

The incident took place on the dance floor at Elements Nightclub around 1.45am on Saturday 28th January when the 18 year old victim was standing with friends within the top floor bar area of the nightclub.

The victim, who is a student at the University of Cumbria, suffered a deep laceration on her left cheek requiring several stitches and a black eye.

DC Ian Wright from Lancaster CID said: “I would appeal to anybody that was in Elements Nightclub on Friday 27th January, into the early hours of Saturday that may have witnessed a bottle being thrown across the dance floor to come forward.

“The dance floor was very busy and the irresponsible actions of this individual have caused serious injuries to a young girl who has been left deeply upset by this incident.”

Anyone with any information should call Lancashire Police on 101.
