Man left with serious injuries after gang street brawl
The 33-year-old was with two others when they got into an altercation with eight to 10 men.
A man has been left seriously injured after a gang brawl on a night out.
The 33-year-old was with another man, 30, and a 31-year-old woman when he was attacked on Sunday in Ayr.
The three were refused entry to the Crumbs and Cocktails bar in Smith Street at around 12.10am.
After crossing the road, they got into an altercation with a dark-haired man wearing a white top. He is thought to be 18 to 25 years old and around 6ft tall.
As the bar emptied he was joined by a further eight to 10 men.
The 33-year-old was seriously injured and taken to Ayr Hospital before being transferred to Crosshouse Hospital near Kilmarnock.
Police are appealing for witnesses.
Detective Constable Scott Patterson said: "This group of three people were enjoying a night out in Ayr, and had crossed the street after finding out the bar was closing.
"The fight that then broke out, firstly between three to four men and latterly between a larger group of men, has left a man with a serious injury in hospital.
"There would have been a number of people on the street at the time of the incident as people began to make their way home.
"We are looking to speak to anyone who was at Crumbs and Cocktails on Saturday 17 February into Sunday 18 February, or indeed anywhere on Smith Street, who either seen this altercation take place or has any information about it. We would urge you to come forward and contact us."
