Lancaster Nightclub Altercation Leaves Man In Hospital

Written by John Nicoll

A man from Lancashire is in a serious condition in hospital following an altercation outside a nightclub in Lancaster. Police are left wanting to speak to a woman who may hold important information.

Lancashire Police were called at shortly before 4.30am yesterday (Sunday, June 12th) to a report that a man had been punched during an altercation outside Glow nightclub, Dalton Square causing him to fall and hit his head on the ground.

The man was aged in his 20s and was part of a group who had been inside the club earlier but had been ejected. It’s thought that he is currently in a critical condition in hospital.

A 31-year-old man from Leigh has been arrested on suspicion of Section 18 assault and bailed pending further enquiries.

Detectives are investigating the full circumstances and they are especially keen to speak to a woman who we believe had an interaction with one or more of the group of men inside the club earlier in the evening.

Detective Insp Dylan Hrynkow, of Lancaster CID, said: “This incident has left a young man very poorly in hospital and my thoughts are with his family at this time. They are being supported by specially trained officers.

“I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward and speak to us. I am particularly keen to speak to a woman who we understand had some interaction with at least one of the group inside the club which she reported to the management. She may be able to help our investigation and I’d be grateful if she could come forward if she sees this appeal.”

Anyone with information of the Lancaster nightclub altercation should call police on 101 quoting log 279 of June 12th. Alternatively contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
