An innocent bystander was injured after being hit by a glass during a row at a Lancaster bar.

The 19-year-old Lancaster man was cut on the face under his eye in the incident at the weekend.

It happened in Bentleys at around 2am on Sunday, September 15.

Lancashire Police said the victim was injured during a disturbance between two groups of people.

In the altercation, several glasses were thrown in the drinking venue, resulting in the man getting hurt.

Two men were later arrested on suspicion of wounding.

They were then released on police bail pending further inquiries, a spokesman said.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the premises at the time.

DC Chris Hardwick, of Lancashire Police, who is based at Lancaster CID, told the Guardian: “I’d like to speak with anyone who witnessed the incident or with any information that could assist with our investigation to contact me on 101.”
