A MAN’S jaw was broken during a “vicious” attack in central Blackpool.

The 20-year-old victim, from Fleetwood, was on Springfield Road when another man ran towards him and punched him in the face, causing him to fall to the floor.

A fight had previously broken out between the two men in Club Sanuk and they were both told to leave. They left the nightclub from different exists but later came across each other again.

Police have now released a CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the assault and are asking people with any information to come forward.

PC Lorna Bolton said: “This was a vicious assault and I would appeal for anyone with any information to come forward. I would be interested in speaking with anyone who may have either seen the altercation within Club Sanuk or who witnessed anything outside the club in the Springfield Road area.

“Any information could be really important so I would urge anyone who thinks they may be able to help to come forward and get in touch with us.”

The attack happened around 1.20am on Sunday, August 21. Call police on 0845 25 35 45 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
