Two people were injured, one of them seriously, after an assault at a nightclub on Church Street.

Police responded to a call for an assault in the Church and Maitland streets area around 12:30 a.m. Saturday

Officers found two victims who had been struck with an object. One of them was bleeding and unconscious.

He was taken to hospital with serious injuries but is expected to recover. The other person was found with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police declined to identify the weapon, because they say it would hinder the investigation as they are waiting for more witnesses to come forward.

Police say they are looking for two suspects, both black males.

An investigation is ongoing.
