Man glassed, another robbed in Welwyn Hatfield pub attacks
BANK holiday celebrations turned sour as two men were injured in assaults at separate pubs in Welwyn Hatfield.
A 36-year-old man was glassed in the face outside The Harrier in Hatfield, leaving him needing hospital treatment.
A pal, also 36, who had tried to intervene in the bust-up, was punched.
The attack took place just after midnight on Easter Sunday outside the pub in Bishops Rise, and police are looking for a black and a white man, both in their 20s.
Pc Emma Summers said: “This is a nasty and serious incident which has resulted in painful injuries for the first victim.
