TWO bouncers needed hospital treatment after they were attacked by a gang of yobs in a Solihull nightspot.

TWO bouncers needed hospital treatment after they were attacked by a gang of yobs in a Solihull nightspot.

Solihull police have released CCTV images of men they’d like to speak to in connection with the incident in the upstairs bar area of The Assembly Rooms at around 1am on Sunday August 22, which left the doormen with facial cuts and bruising.

The thugs had been reported to staff for throwing bottles around and spraying other customers with beer – but on being asked to leave they became aggressive and lashed out at the bouncers.

Investigating officer PC Katie Morris said: “These men seemed intent on causing trouble, they were aggressive to other customers and when asked to leave the bar they lashed out.

“The doormen were both punched in the face several times and their injuries required hospital treatment.

“We believe there were three or four men involved in the fight – and we’re particularly keen to speak to the man seen in the black T-shirt who’s been described by witnesses as a ring leader.”

The man is described as white, in his late 20s, around 6ft 2ins tall, with short black hair with spikes on top. He was wearing a black T-shirt with distinctive design on the front and sleeves, and a long chain.

Anyone who recognises the men or who has information about the assault, is urged to contact PC Morris on 0345 113 5000 (ext 7921 6585) or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
