Police are seeking witnesses after a man was violently suckered punched in a Co Armagh bar last night.

Officers investigating the assault which took place in the Courthouse Bar in Lurgan shortly before closing time have asked any witnesses to get in touch.

“Were you in the Courthouse Bar last night?” a PSNI spokesperson has asked. “Did you see an assault take place near the toilets not long before kicking out time?

“One male was sucker punched in the face by another male, who we’d now be keen to have a chat with.

“If you are that male, it would be wise to get in touch. When we check CCTV we’re confident we’ll have you, and if we need to make your face public to identify you, we will.

“Last night Lurgan was all very good spirited, with nothing but selfies and some really bad shirts on show. People should not be allowed to get away with ruining others nights like this.”

The incident number is 119 of 22/06/19.
