AN ARGUMENT which escalated into an assault outside a Clevedon nightspot resulted in a man suffering a broken jaw.
The incident happened in the car park of Vibe nightclub in the early hours of January 27 and now police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
At about 3am, the victim and a friend approached a group of three men stood next to a silver hatchback car, who they asked for a lift. However, the discussion developed into an argument.
The victim was assaulted by one of the men, causing him facial injuries, before he fell to the floor and was kicked by the other two.
He was taken to Weston General Hospital the next day and then sent to Bristol Royal Infirmary for treatment for a broken jaw.
