UPDATE: The wife of a man punched repeatedly at a city nightspot says he was almost unrecognisable after the brutal attack.
Perth city detectives are appealing for help to catch two men who attacked Allan at Tiger Lil’s on Saturday evening.
The 47-year-old was at the venue for his son’s bucks night when he was confronted as he sat at a bench having a beer.
“This guy just stood over me and said ‘move along’ or something like that, I questioned him and the result was I ended up getting the crap punched out of me,” Allan said.
“I don’t think I said anything wrong; even if I did does it justify what happened? “It was just brutal…it’s just very cowardly.”
Allan lost consciousness during the attack and is unsure how many times he was punched. He has been told at least one other man joined the attack.
“The first punch took me out of action…I don’t know how long it went on for,” he said.
“The next thing I can recollect…I woke up on the floor.
“My right hand was covered in blood and there was blood running down over my right eye.
“I was not even looking at him when the first blow came.”
Allan was taken to Royal Perth Hospital with facial injuries and has stitches in my right eyebrow, above his upper lip and on the inside of his upper lip.
His wife Alice said when she got to the hospital to see her husband, he was almost unrecognisable.
“He was a mess and he was distraught,” she said.
“He was just sitting there minding his own business (in the bar.)
“It’s just been really very traumatic for all of us.”
Alice said she feared if the two men responsible were not caught soon they could do the same to someone else.
“They’ve gone and done it to somebody who was not doing anything wrong so I am frightened if something is not done about these people the next person could be dead,” she said.
Perth City Det-Sen. Const Sam Hazlitt said the two men who attacked Allan inside the bar were last seen leaving the venue and walking along Murray Street.
“We see these sorts of incidents far too often on Perth’s streets,” he said.
The first man who attacked Allan is Caucasian, aged about 30, 188cm tall, with a medium to heavy build.
He was wearing a black shirt, had a mullet style haircut, tattoos on his right arm, a goatee and a gold chain around his neck.
The second man is younger, aged in his 20s, and had a shaved head with a mullet at the back.
The attack happened between 11pm on Saturday night and 1am on Sunday morning. Police would like to speak to the man pictured, who they believe can assist with their inquiries.Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
