Hunt for couple after attack outside nightclub
POLICE are searching for a couple following an assault which left a man with a bleed on the brain.
Officers say they are looking for "a blonde woman in short shorts or a short skirt and the man with her" who left a Southampton nightclub at the time of the attack.
They have released this CCTV image of the couple, who were seen leaving a club at the time the victim was punched and it is thought they could have vital information.
As previously reported by the Daily Echo, shortly after midnight on the morning of Friday, August 30, a 19-year-old Locks Heath man was punched to the ground near the rear entrance of Junk nightclub at the corner of Winchester and Salisbury Streets, Southampton.
The victim was treated at Southampton General Hospital, where it was discovered he suffered a bleed on the brain.
It is believed the offender then became involved in a larger fight with several other people. Detectives want to locate a group of Asian men who were in the area at the time and may have been approached by the offender and his friends.
Police are appealing for contact from anyone who was in the area at the time of the assault. Detective Constable Abigail Leeson said: “There were many people in the street at the time of the incident, watching what was going on. If this was you, please come forward.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Leeson at Shirley CID on 101 or to ring the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111.
