Cape Town - The family of a man that was assaulted at a popular Cape Town nightclub managed to find his alleged attacker on a popular party picture website, it was reported on Monday.

The 24-year-old Parow man was in Mercury Lounge on 29 July when he was assaulted by a man believed to be a mixed martial arts fighter, the Cape Argus reported.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was left with a broken cheekbone and will have to get a plate inserted into his cheek.

The victim’s sister said they pulled pictures from and had identified her brother’s attacker. She said she got his name from someone she knows in the martial arts community.

The family have laid a charge at the Cape Town police station and police spokesperson Colonel Thembinkosi Kinana said the matter was under investigation but no arrests have been made.

The alleged attacker and some of his friends had been previously banned from the club for causing trouble, Mercury Live & Lounge owner Kevin Winder said.
Anyone with information can contact investigating officer, Detective Constable Sicake on 073 907 3740 or 021 467 8001, during office hours.
