STAMFORD, Conn. -- A bouncer at a Bedford Street restaurant was punched twice in the face as he escorted an unruly patron out early Friday morning, police said.
The bouncer - a 57-year-old former Stamford policeman - prevented a man who was inebriated from entering the Hudson Grille at 128 Bedford St. A short time later the man had made his way into the restaurant through an another entrance. As he was taking the man out, the bouncer was punched once in the throat area and once on the left side of his face.
The suspect fled up Bedford Street and was described as a white man about 5 ft 9 ins., possibly named "Brian" with short black hair. What might make his identification easier is that his black t-shirt was adorned with a rainbow flag and a barstool, police said.
The bouncer declined treatment and police will review surveillance video that the establishment has, Sgt. Simon Blanc said.
