A man had to undergo surgery after being attacked at a Sheffield bar during the Bank Holiday revelling last weekend.

The 23-year-old suffered multiple fractures to his left eye in what is believed to be an unprovoked attack at the House of Hugo bar on Carver Street, off Division Street, in the city centre.

Police were called to the boutique late night venue at 2.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday - as people enjoyed a Sunday night out without the worry of work the next morning.

The 23-year-old was taken to hospital by ambulance and a 24-year-old man was arrested by South Yorkshire Police officers on suspicion of assault. He was bailed pending further enquiries.

Detective Constable Nick Parker, who is investigating the attack, said: “There were a number of people in the bar at the time and we urge anyone with information to get in touch.”

Witnesses to the incident should call police on 101, quoting incident number 238 of April 6, 2015.

Alternatively, people with information can call independent crime fighting agency Crimestoppers on its 24/7 phone number, 0800 555 111.

Callers are not required to give their name or any other personal details.
