Appeal after 18-year-old woman assaulted at Rock City in Nottingham

Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was hit in the face with a handbag inside a busy nightclub.

Officers attended Rock City, in Talbot Street, Nottingham city centre, following reports a woman had been assaulted.

The 18-year-old victim had reportedly been trying to break up a fight when the incident happened, around 2.45am on Friday 23 February.

She suffered a heavy blow to the head, after being struck with a handbag by another woman.

The woman lost consciousness multiple times following the assault and needed stitches after sustaining a nasty gash to her head.

Police investigating the incident have now released two images of a woman they’d like to speak to in connection with the assault.

Chief Inspector Karl Thomas, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We would urge anyone who saw what happened, or who recognises the woman in these pictures, to get in touch with us immediately.

“The nightclub would’ve still been busy at the time, so we do believe multiple people will have seen this attack take place.

“A woman had to be taken to hospital for treatment after sustaining a nasty blow to the head during this incident.

“Clearly that’s not acceptable, so we’d ask anyone who has any information to please let us know by calling the police on 101, quoting incident 263 of 23 February 2024.

“Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.”
