Woman Punched in Birmingham Bar


Police have released a picture of two men they want to speak to after a woman was attacked in a city centre bar.

This happened in the Review Bar in the Arcadian, Hurst Street around midnight on Saturday 8 September. The 26 year old from Walsall was dancing with friends when she was shoved and dragged away by two men. One of the men punched her in the face, causing her to lose consciousness. She awoke outside the bar as paramedics tended to her injuries. She was left with severe bruising and a cut above her eye, which needed stitches.

Police have today released a picture of two men they want to speak to, after local enquiries have failed to identify the pair.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Gareth Williams said: “This was a totally unprovoked attack on a young woman who was enjoying an evening out with friends.

“We are hoping that someone will recognise the men in the picture and come forward to help us identify them.

“If anyone who has information and does not want to speak to officers, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously.

“City centre police regularly patrol the Arcadian to ensure that revellers can enjoy their evening in a safe and enjoyable manner. Visitors can also do their bit to keep themselves safe by staying with friends, looking after their property and parking in a secure location if driving into the city.”

DC Williams can be contacted on 101 and Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
