Student attack.

A STUDENT is being questioned after a partygoer dressed as a pirate bit off a chunk of a fellow reveller's ear.

The University-term got off to a bad start for the teenagers who became involved in a brawl outside a nightspot in Newcastle city centre.

The alleged attacker, who was wearing a pirate costume at the time, is said to have assaulted a 19-year-old in a car park on Stowell Street.

The students had been thrown out of a bar, in The Gate, before the altercation broke out, at around 1.20am on Thursday.

The victim suffered bite wounds to the face, leg and ear, in the assault.

An 18-year-old man was arrested last night and was this morning being questioned by police.
