Burnley pub assault appeal

Friday, July 12, 2019

We are appealing for information following a serious assault at a pub in Burnley.

We attended the Bees Knees, on Hargreaves Street, at around 1am on Friday (July 5th) to find an altercation had broken out between a group of around three men, which had resulted in a bouncer having a glass smashed into his face. He was taken to hospital for treatment.

Two members of staff were also assaulted, resulting in one sustaining a slash to the forehead and a fire door at the rear of the premises was damaged during the incident.

Two people have since been arrested.

We are now asking anybody who saw what happened or has information about it to get in touch with us as soon as possible.

DC Dean Briggs, of Burnley Police, said: “This was a violent assault which resulted in the bouncer at the premises having to seek hospital treatment. We have since arrested two people.

“We are now asking for help from the public as we piece together exactly what occurred. If you saw all or part of the incident and have not yet been spoken to by the police we would urge you to get in touch as soon as possible.”

Anybody with information is asked to get in touch on 101, quoting log number 52 of July 5th.

A 25-year-old man from Burnley was arrested on suspicion of assault – GBH and has been released on bail, pending further enquiries, until August 2nd.
