AN altercation in Seventeen Black bar and nightclub in Cirencester led to a young man being thrown “through a glass window”, according to police.

Police were called to a disturbance at the nightclub just after 2am on the morning of September 29.

A 20-year-old man from Cirencester had allegedly thrown a 21-year-old man from Southam in Warwickshire “through a glass window within the club”, according to police sergeant Garrett Gloyn.

The victim of the assault sustained a cut on his back and to his lower right leg. Ambulance were called as he was bleeding heavily and he was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

The 20-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of inflicting Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH). He has however been ‘released under investigation’ while police consult with the victim and the owners of the club.

Daniel Lafford, manager of Seventeen Black, said the issue had been settled.

He said: “There was an altercation in the club which meant that a decorative window at the end of the corridor was damaged.

“It was a fireproof, safety glass window.

“We got in touch with the two parties, and we are under the impression that they are friends over the situation. They didn’t know each other beforehand.

“The lad who pushed the other lad has apologised, has offered to pay for the window, has assisted in the first aid of the lad who went through the window, and has assisted the Seventeen Black team and ambulance in ensuring recovery.

“It was a silly situation but the way they dealt with it was good. We’re in contact with both of them and we will be receiving payments from one of them.

“It’s quite an expensive window, normally I’d be very angry, but the way they’ve dealt with it was good. We’re moving on.”
