Man left with fractured eye socket after alleged nightclub assault

Lincolnshire Police is appealing for mobile phone footage of an alleged serious assault back in April 2022. The incident left a man with a fractured eye socket and injuries to their jaw which required surgery. The alleged assault is reported to have happened on the main dancefloor at Home nightclub in Lincoln on Friday, April 15 between 11.30pm and 11.45pm near the bar area.

Lincolnshire Police released an appeal on Friday, June 10, almost two months later. Police have described the victim as a man with a thick moustache wearing a black and purple Diadora top with a stripe across the middle, black cargo trousers and black trainers. He was out with one friend.

Lincolnshire Police has said it is treating the incident as grievous bodily harm (GBH). Det Con Tom Lassmans, leading the investigation, said: "This is an extremely serious assault which has had a very real physical and emotional impact on the victim, and we are investigating the offence to the fullest possible extent. "We have been following a number of lines of enquiry since this incident happened, and now believe that an appeal to the public could help us to secure the evidence needed to identify the offenders.

There could be a piece of footage on your phones which give us that little nugget of information we need to identify the person responsible.

"We'd rather have the footage to view and be able to determine whether it has relevance or not, so please take a small amount of time and help us bring them to justice."
