CCTV: Clubber suffers fractured cheekbone and broken nose after argument in Altrincham nightspot

By Danielle Wainwright

Two thugs mercilessly broke a man’s cheekbone, nose and ribs after an argument in an Altrincham nightclub leaving him in hospital more than one month on.

Now police have released images of men they want to speak to as well as CCTV footage.

The 22-year-old victim was with friends in Nicholson’s nightclub at around 1.50am on May 5, when an argument took place with two men.

The offenders were ejected from the club and chased their target as he left with his friends.

As they reached a taxi rank on Stamford Road, the victim was knocked to the floor and kicked repeatedly leaving him, with a fractured cheekbone, broken nose, ribs and a dislocated ankle.


DO YOU KNOW THESE MEN? Police want to speak to them

Detective Constable Sonia Johnston from Trafford South INPT said: “There was an argument between the two parties which has resulted in a 22-year-old being severely punched and kicked.

“His injuries are that bad, it is likely he will need to spend the next few weeks in hospital.”

One man is described as being white, 5ft 8in tall, of medium build and had a shaved head. He wore a black long sleeve top that was ripped at the back.

The second man was white, around 5ft 6in tall, of skinny build and had short dark hair. He wore a navy blue jumper with leather patches on the elbow.

Detective Constable Sonia Johnston from Trafford South INPT said: “There was an argument between the two parties which has resulted in a 22-year-old being severely punched and kicked. His injuries are that bad, it is likely he will need to spend the next few weeks in hospital.

"I would ask anyone who may have witnessed this vicious attack or recognise the descriptions given, to contact us. If you recognise the men in the images, please get in touch.”
