Stagette ends with bar room brawl

Bride suffers cuts to head and leg three weeks before wedding

Photos tweeted by friends of the bride-to-be show her injuries. The woman alleges she was attacked by a waitress at Bar None.

Vancouver police are investigating a weekend bar fight in Yaletown that sent a bride-to-be from Pitt Meadows to the hospital with injuries.

Around 11:45 p.m. on Feb. 23, police were called to the Bar None Night Club on Hamilton Street.

When they arrived, they found a 29-year-old woman suffering from cuts to her head and leg.

It appears that the woman, there for her stagette party, was involved in an altercation inside the bar with two different groups of people.

Police are working to identify all the people involved in the fight and will be reviewing video to establish what exactly went on inside the club.

“We do know that there was another group involved, other than the victim and bar staff,” says VPD spokesperson Randy Fincham. “It is important that these people come forward and tell their side of the story.”

The next morning, Bar None’s Facebook page was inundated with more than 300 comments from the woman’s friends, calling on the club to take action.

In a Facebook post, the woman, photographer who now lives in Mission, claims she was attacked unprovoked and has stitches on her head just three weeks before her wedding.

On Facebook, Bar None stressed it takes the safety of patrons and employees seriously.

No one has been charged and the investigation is on-going.

• Anyone with information about the fight is asked to call the Vancouver Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477.
