Clubber left with £ 6k dental bill after teeth knocked out in ‘unprovoked’ attack

A clubber who moved from Birmingham to Wales to be closer to his girlfriend was left with a £ 6,000 dental bill after he was attacked at a nightspot. Jonathan Maxfield had his two front teeth knocked out in the smoking area of ​​Fiction & Vinyl in Swansea in the early hours of March 12.

He came around in a back room, surrounded by door staff and cradling a bucket filled with his own blood. The 22-year-old had been out on the town with his 19-year-old girlfriend, Leah, but said the incident had left him scared to leave his home.

He said: “We’d gone out to celebrate our one-year anniversary together and the evening had been going great. Then, all of a sudden, it was lights out.” He said he had no clear memory about what happened, WalesOnline reported.

Several other of Jonathan’s teeth were damaged and he suffered cuts and bruises to his face and body. The incident came just hours after punters had packed the city’s pubs to watch Wales play France in the Six Nations.

The car showroom worker said: “It all happened so quickly I did not see a thing, although Leah remembers one of the three blokes responsible for the attack being around 6ft 3ins tall, of slim build, with light brown or blonde hair.

“He was also wearing a black T-shirt. There were definitely plenty of people around at the time though, including one girl who helped to comfort Leah who’d been really shaken up by the whole experience. I’m hoping that by speaking out it’ll prompt those witnesses to come forward. “

“I’ve definitely become very nervous whenever leaving the house – which I’ve only really done in order to visit the dentist – because there was just no reason for what happened.

“Plus, because no-one’s been ID’d, I’m constantly anxious of who’s around me. And, on top of everything, I’ve been told it’ll cost six grand to get them permanently replaced. I can not afford that.I’m the meantime I’ve been given a set of dentures – but I’m only 22 and do not want those for the rest of my life.

“I had to put up with wearing orthodontic braces as a teenager so, without wishing to sound big-headed, I had beautiful teeth before all this.” A spokesperson for South Wales Police said: “We were called just before 2.15am on Saturday, March 12, following reports a man had been assaulted in Fiction, Swansea, and had his teeth knocked out.

“The 22-year-old man was with his girlfriend in the smoking area of ​​Fiction when the assault happened. The suspect was described as being a white male, with either blonde or brown hair and was wearing jeans and a black T-shirt.

“Officers conducted a number of inquiries on the night, including viewing CCTV footage, however no suspect or witnesses were identified. Investigations are still ongoing into the incident and anyone who witnessed the assault is asked to contact us quoting reference number 2200082190.”
