A man had to be taken to hospital and have his face and eyelid stitched up after he was glassed in a York city centre bar on Easter Sunday.
The victim, a man in his 20s from Goole, was attacked at about 9.10pm on Sunday, April 5 in Kennedy’s Café Bar on Little Stonegate.
He was standing at the bar with friends when he was struck in the face with a glass.
Police say the glass shattered on impact, causing lacerations to his face and eyelid. He was taken to York Hospital for treatment.
