A MAN was attacked from behind in the toilet of a Wigan nightclub.

Sometime between 3am and 3.30am on Sunday, February 23, a 25-year-old man was in the toilet of Surfers Paradise on King Street when he was hit from behind by an unknown person who was armed with an unknown weapon.

The man suffered a deep gash to his head and was taken to hospital where his wound was stapled.

Pc Warren Barrow, said: “The victim had his back to the assailant and was struck with a weapon so it was an extremely cowardly attack on a drunk and defenceless man.

“He suffered a serious head injury and I would urge anyone with information about this incident or the offender to contact us.

“Were you in the club at the time and did you see what occurred? Perhaps something happened inside the club just before that might be relevant? If so, please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 7259, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
