Woman Glassed On Deansgate Locks

Victim could be scarred for life after weekend attack

Woman Glassed On Deansgate Locks

A woman glassed in the face in a bar on Deansgate Locks over the weekend could be scarred for life.

It happened at the Revolution Bar on Deansgate Locks at about 1.50am on Sunday 7 August 2011.

"For all the wrong reasons, she will remember this night for the rest of her life as the glass will likely leave a permanent scar."

The 25-year old woman, who has not been named, was with three friends on the downstairs dancefloor when her attacker deliberately bumped into the group several times.

The offender then pushed into the woman again and screamed at her, before striking her in the face with a glass.

She fell to the floor having sustained a deep cut to her forehead which needed hospital treatment, and will probably leave a permanent scar.

Her attacker was then ejected by door staff for her general behaviour - unaware of the assault until after she had left.

Police are now appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

The offender was described as white, in her 20s with straight shoulder length brown hair, about 5ft 5in tall and of an average build. She was believed to be wearing a purple top and black trousers and was with another man and woman.

Detective Constable Chris Chadderton, of north Manchester CID, said: "This was a completely and utterly senseless attack.

"The woman was enjoying a night out with her friends and was attacked for no reason. For all the wrong reasons, she will remember this night for the rest of her life as the glass will likely leave a permanent scar.

"It is therefore absolutely vital we trace the offender and give the woman some peace of mind knowing she has been caught.

"There would have been a lot of people in the club and on the dancefloor who either witnessed the attack itself or saw the woman responsible. Please, if you did see what happened or remember something about the assault, call us."

Manchester is like a big market town. All the local urban yokels come in at weekends for a punch up and an booze up.

Spot-on. Manchester is becoming a pure drinkers' town - get pissed, head to the nearest chavanista bar and have a punch up. And that's just the women. Used to be my home, I am genuinely sorry that I needed to move out of the city.

The orange skinned, plastic titted, Kardashian-lite, suburban contingent seem to flock to Ibiza for a ruck these days. You get a better class of punch-up out there.

If you dont like it, dont go to the "chavnista bars". There are plenty of good places to go out in Manchester where you dont risk being glassed. Im not naming names of bars though, dont want all the "local urban yokels" finding out about it.

Manchester is not becoming a pure drinkers' town, it has been like this since I arrived 10 years ago. Lorna is right though - there are places to go that do not attract these kinds of people... and these are what make Manchester special.

Revolution does have one of the highest police call out rates in mancheshter! you think such a big company could stamp it out i they wanted to. they take the money and see such incidents as collatteral damage.

My view has always been for ten years that when this sort of incident occurs the establishment should be closed for a full investigation and possible review of the license to impose sensible operating conditions. Certainly the premises supervisor should be sacked and the person supervising on the night likewise.

"A permanent scar" The victim should claim from the bar for treatment to avoid a permanent scar as well as for all the other things.

These IDIOTS live everywhere not just Manchester. Just because this lady went to the locks, does not mean should be glassed. If the punishment for glassing someone was having your hands cut off, there would be less glassing.............simples!

Update....Last night the Police closed Revolution Deansgate Locks just before 2am for a second glass related incident. Another girl was glassed in the face causing serious injury and will result in permanent facial scaring. This is the second time in a month this venue has had girls glassed in the face.....Premises get shut down by the Police for much less...maybe the big money company will be treated differently....Between Revolution and Sakura thats 3 people glassed in the face in the last month.....I am a big fan of the locks but stay away from these venues now as they just let anyone in and over fill them causing tension inside. pssst...I also heard Sakura has been caught 6 times selling drinks to children (Under 18) and its the new gangster hangout.......
