CCTV appeal over Nottingham bar attack

The victim was hit in the face with a wooden pole.

A 21-year-old man who was attacked in a Nottingham bar says he is still trying to come to terms with why he was assaulted.

Martyn Fryer, from Arnold, was having a drink at the G Spot bar on Heathcoate Street when a man walked in and hit him across the face with a wooden pole.

All Mr Fryer's front teeth were pushed back and he suffered cuts to his mouth and gums in the attack.

Police have released CCTV of men they wish to speak to over the July attack.

The footage shows two men outside the bar, moments before one of them went in and attacked Mr Fryer.

"I had just finished work and was enjoying a quiet drink when this man came in and knocked me into next week for reasons that are beyond me," said Mr Fryer.

"It's an experience I wouldn't want to have again and I wouldn't want anyone else to go through this.

"I haven't been out since really. I don't see why and understand why he's done it because I've done nothing to him."

Anyone who has any information about the attack on 5 July 2012 is asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police.
