Woman struck by bottle thrown off North Bridge
A WOMAN suffered a gash to her head after being struck by a bottle which was thrown off North Bridge.
The woman was standing outside the City nightclub in Market Street when she was hit by the bottle thrown from above her.
She was treated by ambulance staff following the incident, which took place at 3am on Saturday.
Inspector Gary Dickson, from the City Centre policing team, said: “This was a highly reckless and dangerous act and the person responsible obviously had no regard for the safety of the pedestrians below.
“Thankfully the woman only sustained fairly minor injuries however the consequences could have been much more serious.
“Both North Bridge and Market Street would have been busy at the time with people leaving bars and nightclubs, and I would appeal to anyone who may have seen the incident to telephone us immediately.”
