The Bolton News: CCTV released of nightclub assault CCTV released of nightclub assault

Police have released CCTV images of a man wanted in connection with an assault outside a nightclub in Bolton.

Between 3.15 and 3.30am on Thursday 8 November 2012, a 21-year-old man and his friend were approached on Mawdsley Street in the town centre outside J2 night club by three other men.

There's something not right about putting money-making adverts at the beginning of CCTV video of violent incidents that the police want us to view.

CCTV is usually of a really dross quality. It's hard to make anything out. J2 invest in some decent equipment, you guys make enough cash.

On topic, THIS people of Bolton is why you will find it difficult to fund a proper nightclub in the TC.

Those who can't keep their fists too themselves are ruining the quality of our TC nightlife. The same people will be **** out when the TC is full of nothing but entertainment for people over 40. As with what has happened at Vogue.

In Bolton you have a choice... stay in the same bar all night because everywhere has exactly the same entertainment policy of 80's music or if you can find the alternative which is becoming scarcer - you risk having your head stoved in by idiots that are only out to cause trouble, trollied on vodka that they drank at home before going out. I do blame the smoking ban in part as this is what happens when you go outside for a ciggy lol. *controversial*

Maybe it's all Wigan council's fault lol - conspiracy.

I hope the guy is ok now and that he does actually let it drop.

J2 not surprised in the totally useless CCTV used here, one would think you would have camera's directly facing the doorway and stairs. Sad to see people behave like this but iv seen on many occasions this crap happens and to be honest alot of the time its people from s**tholes outside of Bolton as-well as from our town. And another thing releasing this footage nearly 2 months after is a stupid move. hope the victim is ok

you would think that with the high quality images available these days you would think they would have decent hd cameras not something rubbuish like this that has a picture worse than from 1 of the 1st webcams that come out 15 years ago.how do they expect anyone to tell who the guy is when his face is just 4 blocks. wouldnt surprise me if they was recording on vhs tapes

Welcome to Bolton Town Centre...

Would anyone in possession of their sanity take their family to a place with such thugs present as the one shown in this police video...

Build a gallows in the centre of Nelson square and re-enact some historical events where the thugs become the stars..but only for a moment!!!!!
