ESSEX Police are appealing for information following two incidents at a nightclub in Epping in the early hours of this morning, January 1.
Officers initially attended following reports that a teenager had been in a verbal exchange with a group of men on the dance floor of Club 195 just before 1.20am.
He was then stabbed once in the stomach and the group of men left the dance floor. The victim now remains in stable condition in hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.
A knife has been recovered from a street nearby and will be sent away for forensic testing, but it is unknown if this was the weapon used in the attack.
Later this morning, at around 3.30am, police received reports of an assault in the street outside the club, which left a teenager unconscious and with several teeth missing.
Their enquiries are ongoing.
They do not believe that these two incidents are linked, but would encourage anyone who was out celebrating New Year’s Eve at Club 195 to contact them with any information if you saw either of these occur.
Please call Loughton CID on 101 and quote the crime reference number 42/156/19 for the stabbing or 42/161/19 for the assault.
You can also call Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.
