Nottingham, UK – Three security guards at a nightclub in Nottingham, England, were fired after a video was shared on social media of them attacking women and pulling their hair as they left the venue. The pictures still show the victims being thrown to the ground and pressed against a plate.
In a Facebook post, 21-year-old Niamh Watson said guards “racist and abused” one of her friends when she left the Stealth nightclub on Sunday morning. She said she was thrown to the ground and pulled by the hair and pushed against a gate. According to Watson, one of his friends was stabbed in the stomach and thrown into a car.
– They attacked my friend, so I helped her and tried to get them out. So they beat me up and dragged me back to the scene and held me against the gate – Watson told the BBC News. – I could not breathe. I knew it sounded dramatic, but for a minute I thought he was going to kill me.
In one video, the young woman is shown screaming at the guard to free herself and drop her. In the recordings, one of the women can be seen being attacked trying to react. The shared pictures also show the wounds and injuries caused by the occupation.
Police were called to the scene around 2:38 a.m. Sunday and the group was disbanded. Authorities say the case is being investigated and witnesses have already testified.
Stealth said it would cooperate with police and provide footage of security rounds. He also said agents were investigating customers and staff involved in the chaos. In a statement, the club announced that it had suspended guards after the incident.
“We were shocked by the video that spread about an incident outside our premises on Goldsmith Street. We understand how traumatic they are. We immediately decided to suspend the homeowners involved when we conducted the investigation,” he said.
The company said it was reviewing the company contracted to provide protection in accordance with the protocols. He also said he encourages training with the team.
