11:54am Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
Police in Plymouth are appealing for witnesses after a man was hit with a bottle, causing injury to his eye.
The incident took place outside the Live Lounge at the Barbican on Sunday 25 August at around 6.45-7pm.
The 47-year-old victim, from the Teignmouth area, was attacked by another man wielding a bottle. This victim had to receive hospital treatment for a 1-inch cut to his right eye.
One man, a 25-year-old from Plymouth, was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and later released on police bail until October 11.
Investigating officer DC Alicia Pointon said: “This was a cowardly, unprovoked attack with the victim unable to defend himself as he was looking in the opposite direction of his attacker.
“There were large crowds of people in the area at the time and we would like to speak with anyone who witnessed this.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 quoting police ref. EC/13/8276.
