Man stabbed in stomach in Nottingham bar

A man was stabbed in the stomach during an argument with a group of men in a Nottingham bar.

The 21-year-old needed surgery following the attack in Bar Rouge at the Britannia Hotel in St James's Street on Thursday evening.

His injuries are not thought to be life threatening and he is in a stable condition in hospital.

Police want to trace five or six men, two wearing top hat-style "fun hats", who left the bar soon afterwards.

The group are then believed to have walked up St James's Street towards Standard Hill.

Woman hurt

One of the suspects was wearing a white T-shirt or collared shirt and dark trousers, has short dark hair and is of medium build.

Another was wearing a baseball cap and had either a scarf or a "snood" around his neck. A third member of the group is bald.

The rest were all wearing jumpers, jeans and jackets.

A 55-year-old woman who was also in the bar at the time suffered a cut to the head, but did not require hospital treatment.

Nottinghamshire Police have appealed for anyone with information about the attack, which happened at 1855 GMT, to contact them.
