Appeal after man assaulted outside nightclub
Monday 4th September, 2006

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 30 year-old man was assaulted in Wigan town centre in the early hours of Monday 4 September 2006.

The assault took place shortly after 1am outside, and in the alleyway between, the Chicago Rock and Liquid nightclubs on King Street.

The victim was seriously assaulted by a man before a by-stander intervened, and the offender went into the nearby Walkabout bar.

The victim was left unconscious, with grazing to his head and a cut to his ear requiring seven stitches. He was taken to Wigan Royal Infirmary for treatment, and kept in overnight before being discharged later that morning.

The offender was dressed in camouflage trousers and a top with '05' on the back of it.

Police are appealing to anyone who may have any further information about this attack to contact police at Wigan police on 0161 856 7259 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
