Vicious assault at London gay bar leaves staff member with fractured skull

Eagle London

Police in London are appealing for help following a violent assault at Eagle London in the UK capital.

The venue is located in Vauxhall, South London. The incident happened in the early hours of Monday morning.

Eagle London’s Sunday night promotion is Horse Meat Disco. One of the most famous clubs in London, it attracts a mixed crowd of gay and straight disco lovers.

Police were called to the venue at around 1.50am.

‘It would appear that two men and a woman took umbrage to being asked to move from the smoking area, and were then subsequently ejected from the premises after making homophobic comments to staff at the venue,’ said a police spokesperson in a statement.

‘After being ejected they became violent, assaulting members of staff – causing one to suffer a fractured skull and another, a fractured foot.

‘Officers attended the scene and arrested two men – 42 years and 30 years – and a 20-year-old woman. They were taken into custody at a south London police station and later released under investigation.

‘This was a particularly vicious attack’

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Phill Govett, from Lambeth, said: ‘This was a particularly vicious attack which stemmed from a minor incident and involved the use of homophobic language. Hate crime in any form will not be tolerated by police and we will take all possible action to bring perpetrators of these offences to justice.’

‘Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident is asked to contact DC Govett on 020 8649 2133. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.’

GSN has contacted Eagle London for further comment and an update on the condition of the affected staff members.
