A University of York student required hospital treatment following a violent assault outside Toffs nightclub last month. Matt Thomas, a first-year Politics and Economics student, was returning to James College when he was confronted by a man in his 20s who punched him and, when he fell to the ground, kicked him repeatedly in the head. The attack appears to have been unprovoked and follows a series of violent incidents that have occurred recently in the vicinity of the club. The police were contacted but, despite CCTV footage, were doubtful they would catch the perpetrator.
