Police have released an image of a man they want to speak to after an assault in a Newcastle city centre nightclub.

Just before 1am on the morning of Sunday, September 10, a 20-year-old man was assaulted in House of Smith on Collingwood Street.

The victim had been inside the bar when he got into an argument with another man and was subsequently punched a number of times before being thrown down some stairs.

Fortunately the victim did not suffer any life-threatening injuries but he was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Enquiries to trace the man responsible are ongoing and police have now released an image of a man they want to speak to as part of their investigation.

He was in the club at the time and could help police. It is believed he could be from the Yorkshire area and also frequents Manchester.

The man, or anyone who recognises him, should contact police by emailing central.intelligence@northumbria.pnn.police.uk quoting ref 111003E/17.
