Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted during a recent Alice Cooper concert at Southampton Guildhall.

The 48-year-old man got into a dispute with another concert-goer and during the scuffle that broke out he was punched several times in the face.

He received facial injuries including a fractured eye socket.

The two men involved were sitting in the balcony area watching the concert on July 25 at about 9pm when the dispute started.

Police are now appealing for anyone who saw the incident to contact them. One of the men involved was bare chested at the time and had earlier removed his artificial leg.

Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact PC Paul Baker at Southampton Central Police Station on 0845 045 45 45 or call Crimestoppers, the charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Police confirmed a 45-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident but has since been released on bail until August 6 while enquiries continue.
