Police are appealing for assistance to identify a man wanted in relation to an assault at a Byron Bay pub on Friday night (May 4).

Officers were told two men were involved in a scuffle inside a hotel on Jonson Street at about 11.25pm when one hit the other in the face with a glass.

A 36-year-old man sustained a cut above his left eye after being hit by the glass, and was taken to Byron Central Hospital for treatment.

Patrons intervened but the other man ran from the hotel.

Police are now appealing for public assistance to identify a man they believe can assist with their investigation.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged 25-30, about 180cm tall with a thin build, brown hair, and was wearing a white shirt and jeans.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has further information is urged to contact Byron Bay Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

  1. THIS STORY HAS NOW REACHED THE U.S… MANY OF US UP HERE DON’T WANT TO COME FOR A LITTLE VISIT BECAUSE OF THE ALCOHOL LEADING TO VIOLENCE PHENOMENON THAT YOU HAVE AND SEEM TO CONDONE. LAST TIME I WAS VISITING AN INNOCENT OLD MAN HAD JUST BEEN KILLED BY A COUPLE OF DRUNK GUYS WHILE JUST WALKING DOWN THE STREET. IS THAT NORMAL? MAYBE YOU COULD LET THEM TRY MARIJUANA AS AN ALTERNATIVE WHICH SEEMS TO MAKE PEOPLE BEHAVE IN A MORE FRIENDLY MANNER.
