Man assaulted by gang while walking home from Wisbech nightclub on New Year’s Day

A MAN was repeatedly punched in the face shortly after leaving a Wisbech nightclub on New Year’s Day.

The victim, a 20-year-old man from Wisbech, was in Chase Street just after 2am - walking home from Spice Nightclub - when the suspects approached him.

He was punched in the face several times and then hit again while he was on the ground.

The victim was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, where he was treated for minor injuries.

It is not known how many attackers there were but they were believed to be white.

Det Con Nigel Coppin, launching an appeal for witnesses, said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw what happened to contact police.

“We are checking all available CCTV, but if anyone was in the area they may have vital information to assist our investigation.”
