Teenager was punched as he left Worcester nightclub
THE victim of an unprovoked attack outside a Worcester nightclub could face surgery as he bids to recover from his injuries.
First-year student James Dallimore was only two weeks into his time at the University of Worcester when he was punched in the face and left covered in blood in New Street.
The 18-year-old, of Wombourne, Wolverhampton, had been leaving popular nightspot Sin at 12.15am on Friday, October 4, when he was approached by another man and punched in the face.
He fell back, hitting his head on the road and when he tried to get up fell forward, hitting his head again.
He was left with a fractured skull and fractured eye socket and may need an operation as he is suffering double vision following the attack.
But he said although the attack has left him feeling ”angry and confused”, it has not put him off Worcester completely.
“I was on a night out in Sin, we were leaving to go to Bushwackers but there is about eight hours I can’t remember,” said Mr Dallimore, who is at home recovering. “I can only remember waking up in Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
“I am still in shock about it and quite angry about it. I am quite confused about what happened.
“I have no idea what happened in the run-up, whether I provoked him or not, but I don’t think I did as I am not that sort of person.”
He said although he could not remember details of the incident, he was now wary of going out.
“It is very scary. I am glad I can’t remember because I would probably have nightmares,” he said.
“My friends said they found me about 200 yards up the road (from Sin) covered in blood.”
Despite the incident, Mr Dallimore has not been put off returning to the city.
“Uni had been going very well, I was really enjoying it,” he said. “It’s not a brilliant way to start. It hasn’t put me off Worcester. It has put me off going out a bit, but the city seemed quite nice.
“When I am fully recovered I will go back out, but not very often.”
