DETECTIVES are today hunting at least one man after a nightclubber was left with a broken jaw following a vicious attack.
The 20-year-old had been enjoying a night out at Zest nightclub in Princes Street when he decided to leave at around 3am on Sunday .
Police believe one or more men then approached the victim and attacked him near the club, leaving him needing surgery to repair his jaw.
A police spokeswoman described the attack as “nasty”.
She said the man's injuries meant he has had difficulty speaking and was forced to communicate by writing down what he wanted to say.
The victim, who is believed to come from Ipswich and live with his mother, told police he had a recollection of having a disagreement with another person inside the club.
