ACT Policing has added video to YouTube of an assault in Civic with this note:

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault outside a Civic nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning (August 17).

About 12.40am, security staff refused a man entry to the Academy nightclub on Bunda Street, Civic.

The man became aggressive and engaged a bystander in a short verbal argument before striking him, causing him to fall to the ground.

The offender then fled on foot in the company of two other men in an easterly direction along Bunda Street.

The male victim was transported to The Canberra Hospital by the ACT Ambulance Service for treatment of his injuries. He was later released.

The offender was described as being a male of Pacific Islander/Maori appearance, about 6”4” (193cm) tall, of a large build and having tattoos on his arms.

He was wearing a dark shirt, grey pants and a black cap displaying the word ‘compton’.

Police canvassed the area for witnesses and are seeking CCTV.

Police are urging anyone who may have any information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided
