Pub doorman assaulted whilst working

I was working as a doorman at a pub. A message was passed on through the radio about a man who had been hitting his wife and to not allow him to come into the venue.

The man’s wife asked if she could come in, she was shaking, scared and crying as he was threatening to kill her. She came into the pub and the man was stopped at the door.

The man then turned around and bottled me in the face right in my nose.

The police were called and he was arrested. I was taken to hospital by ambulance.

My children were asleep and I went to my neighbour’s house to help as there was a gang of lads trying to get into their house.

I asked the gang to keep the noise down and to leave. As I turned to leave two of the gang attacked me. I was hit with a bottle and knocked to the ground. The two men then used my head as a football, and kicked me several times.

The attack was unprovoked and there were witnesses. I reported what happened to the police.

Myself and a friend arrived at a bar on our way home from an event in North London. We had only had two drinks previous to this and we ordered two pints and chose a seat furthest from the bar near the window. When we chose this seat the two seats opposite were empty.

Sometime later two men sat in the empty seats. At first they chatted amongst themselves but 5-10 minutes later they initiated conversation with us.

We spoke with them for a few minutes but then we politely said we were having a catch up.

One of the men started asking why we didn’t want to speak to them and became aggressive in his tone. My friend at this point asked the bouncer to have a word with the two men and they appeared to leave.

Ten minutes later the men came back. One of them was angry and the other was trying to lead him away. The bouncer asked them to leave and a bartender asked us if we would like to move closer to the bar where they could keep an eye on things.

After being moved the angry man came back shouted something incomprehensible to my friend and threw a drink over her. Not seeing that the man had gone outside my friend made her way to the bouncer who was also outside. I followed to support her at which point another drink was poured over my friend.

The man then threw the glass at us where it shattered on the door frame and bounced back into my upper lip.

The man was arrested at the scene and I gave a statement. I was taken to hospital where I received 5 stitches.

I was standing by my work vehicle talking on my mobile phone and was approached by the assailant. The assailant tried to steal my phone and slashed my face with a knife. He then left the scene.
