Man Glassed At Stroud Snooker Club
Police in Stroud are appealing for witnesses after a man had a glass pushed into his face at the Matchplay Snooker Club.
The victim, a 29 year-old man from Stroud, had been at a party at the club, on the Salmon Springs Trading Estate off Cheltenham Road, during the evening of Saturday March 24.
Between 11.45pm and just after midnight he became aware of a fight taking place between some of the guests and he stepped in to intervene.
It was at this point that the victim had a glass pushed into his face, causing a two inch long cut beneath his left eye that required hospital treatment.
Two men, a 32 year-old and a 39 year-old, both from Stroud, have been arrested in connection with the attack. Both have been bailed pending further enquiries until May 2.
Despite the arrests officers remain keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the attack or who has information about it.
Anyone with information is asked to call Stroud police on 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 707 of March 24.
