Search for fancy dress drinkers after pub assault; Do you know three suspected of attack on reveller.


KITTED out in fancy dress, a party of drinkers make an amusing site as they walk into a city bar.

But running into the imaginatively-attired trio was no laughing matter for one reveller. Police are today hunting the gang, who are wanted after a woman was attacked during a night out.


The assault left the victim with a fractured cheekbone.

Yet her suspected attackers, who were wearing fancy dress when they struck at Newcastle's Mushroom Bar, have never been traced.

Detectives investigating the assault want to speak to a man, who was wearing a pinstripe suit, a woman dressed in a Moulin Rouge-style corset, and another wearing a replica Pink Ladies jacket like those worn in the film Grease.

Police have now released CCTV images of the suspects and are appealing for anyone who recognises them to get in touch.

Det Con Joanna Connon, of Northumbria Police's Newcastle Central CID team, said: "We've carried out a number of enquiries into the incident and now have CCTV images of three people in fancy dress who we believe can help us with the investigation.

"I'd urge them or anyone who recognises them to contact police as soon as possible."

The assault took place in Mushroom Bar, on Grainger Street, at around 10.30pm on Saturday, July 16.

The 24-year-old victim suffered a fractured jaw.

The man was wearing a white pin-stripe suit, one woman had on a silver corset, and the other a Pink Ladies jacket.

Anyone with any information should call Northumbria Police on 03456 043 043 ext 69191, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
