Man breaks his ankle after clubber punches him in the face

Police are investigating after a man was knocked out in a Weston-super-Mare bar.

The victim, who is in his 30s, was assaulted at about 1am on Sunday, December 8, at Yates in Regent Street.

PC Olly Stokes said: “A man has walked up to the victim, who was stood just off the side of the dancefloor, punched him in the face, and then seemingly left.

“The victim has fallen to the ground, breaking his ankle and injuring his face.

“The bar was very busy and from the CCTV there was clearly a lot of people nearby who should have witnessed the assault.”

Police would like to speak to a man spotted in the area at the time in connection with the incident as part of our enquiries.

He is described as white, bald and believed to be aged in his 30s.
