A 23-year-old man is seriously ill in hospital after being attacked near a Birmingham nightclub.
The man was with his girlfriend in a car park on Tennant Street behind Gatecrasher at about 00:30 GMT when he was set upon.
It is understood his attacker, believed to be an Asian male, was in a car with several other men before getting out to confront the couple, police said.

West Midlands Police said the venue and car park were "very busy" at the time of the incident and have appealed for any witnesses to contact them.
