Man hospitalised after fight over hat
POLICE are investigating an assault on the Promenade in Cheltenham that appears to have stemmed from an argument about a hat.
The incident happened at around 3.35am on Saturday, October 5 outside Subtone nightclub.
A 25-year-old local man was outside the club with his friend, a 21-year-old man, when another man came along and took a hat from the 21-year-old’s head.
This led to a verbal disagreement and the man assaulted the 25-year-old, causing him to fall to the ground and suffer injuries to his face. He was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for treatment.
The offender was described as white, around 6ft tall and between 20 and 25-years-old. He had short brown ‘spiky’ hair and was wearing a tweed jacket. He ran from the scene in the direction of Imperial Square.
Witnesses to the incident are asked to call Gloucestershire Police on 101 quoting incident number 122 of October 5.
