Man assaulted by three thugs in Wimbledon nightclub — CCTV released

A 25-year-old man was attacked by three thugs in a Wimbledon nightclub in March — police have released CCTV today in an appeal for witnesses.

Police were called at around 1:45am to reports of an assault at Tunnel 267 nightclub on The Broadway on Saturday, March 19.

Three men walked into the nightclub, formerly known as Watershed, and later approached a 25-year-old man at the bar who was ordering some drinks.

Following an exchange of words about queue jumping, one of the suspects hit the victim in the face with a glass causing cuts to his cheek, ear and forehead.

Two other suspects then punched and kicked him.

The London Ambulance Service attended and took the victim to a south London hospital, where he was later discharged with ten stitches.

Detectives from Merton Borough investigating the assault have issued CCTV footage of three men they wish to speak to in connection with the incident.

The suspects, who were captured on CCTV, are described as:
