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

On Saturday, 19 March police were called at around 01:45hrs to a report of an assault at The Watershed Nightclub, The Broadway, Wimbledon.

Three men walked into the nightclub 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 was 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.

London Ambulance Service attended and took the victim to a south London hospital. He was later discharged with ten stitches.

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

Suspect 1 [image ref 211768] is described as a tall, black man of medium build with short black hair and a short beard, aged in his 20s. He was seen wearing a black t-shirt with two buttons on the front, black trousers and black shoes. He left wearing a hooded jacket with a fur hood. He had tattoos over both his wrists.
