Man unconscious after alleged assault at Norwich bar

Investigations are under way after a man was rushed to hospital following an alleged assault at a city bar.

A 26-year-old man was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after police were called to Karma Kafe in Bedford Street in Norwich city centre at about 3.40am today (Sunday).

It is thought a confrontation broke out on the stairs and the man fell.

The man was said to have been unconscious for a long time but an East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said it is believed his injuries were 'not immediately life threatening'. A Norfolk police spokesman said he did not know the man's current condition.

Two men were arrested in relation to the incident.
