The assault happened at around 4.10am on Thursday 16 September.

The victim, aged 19, and her friends left the nightclub in Canons Road and were walking towards the city centre, when they met a man near The Aquarium.

After a short conversation, the man punched the victim, knocking her unconscious and leaving her with a facial injury that required stitches.

The man ran off towards the city centre and was last seen talking to a taxi driver near the Hippodrome.

The offender is described as being mixed race, about 5ft 11ins and of slim build. He was wearing white shorts, white trainers and a white baseball cap.

Police believe the area outside Pryzm would have been busy with students leaving the event and it’s possible that someone has either witnessed this assault or knows who the offender is.

If you have any information, please call The Avon and Somerset Constabulary on 101 and quote reference number 95900/14.
