Police are now seeking to identify the man who had been verbally aggressive to the victim inside the club before the physical attack at about 12.25am on Saturday, March 3.

Outside the club, the man tried to strike the victim with a baseball bat, but another man intervened, grabbing the bat out of his hand. The man then punched the victim in the head twice, knocking him to the ground.
