A man has been left with multiple broken bones after being headbutted in a Newcastle nightclub.

At around 2.50am in the early hours of Sunday, November 20, the 18-year-old victim was out with friends in Floritas bar on Collingwood Street.

He then got into a verbal altercation with another man who then headbutted him near to the bar.

The offender then left the bar and the victim was taken to hospital with multiple fractures to his face.

Enquiries to trace the offender are ongoing but he is still yet to be identified.

Officers are now appealing for any witnesses to the incident and anyone who may know who the man involved was.

He is described as white, around 6ft tall, of Stocky build, with black hair that was shaved at the sides and tattoos on his arms and neck.

PC Laura Lamb said: “This was a really nasty assault that left the victim hospitalised with multiple fractures.

“We want our city centres to be a safe place for people to enjoy a night out and this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.

“A full investigation has been ongoing since the incident but we are now appealing for help of anyone else who was in the bar that night.

“If you saw what happened, or know the person responsible, then please get in touch.”
