Police have released a CCTV image of a man they wish to trace after a ‘nasty’ assault on a bouncer outside a pub in Nottingham.
The 28-year-old bouncer was detaining a drunk man at the Royal Children pub in Castle Gate on Saturday 11 November at 10.26pm.
As he was doing so, two men began to attack the bouncer. He was repeatedly punched before being kicked to the head.
One of the attackers has been described as a white male, in his late 20s, slim build, wearing a black jumper, black trousers and black shoes.
The second attacker has been described as a black male, in his late 30s, wearing a black hat, camel coloured jacket, black top, black trousers and black shoes.
A CCTV image has been released of a man that could help police with their inquiries.
PC Maria Georgiou-Scott, who is investigating the incident, said:
“This was a nasty and unprovoked attack on a bouncer just trying to keep the public safe.
“He was trying to ensure a man was ejected from the premises for his behaviour when two men decided to launch a vicious attack on him.
“The attack left him with a broken nose, black eye and injured lip.
“There is no place for violence in our city centre and this completely unacceptable behaviour will never be tolerated. I am determined to ensure these offenders are brought to justice and pay the price for this attack.
“We have carried out a number of lines of inquiry to identify the two attackers and have released a CCTV image in the hope the public can assist us.
“We believe this man could help us further our investigation. Do you know the man in the picture? Are you the man in the picture? Please get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
