A 21-year-old Turner man will face court in January following an incident at a Canberra City night club early on Friday morning (13 December 2019).

About 2.33am ACT Policing responded to a disturbance between security guards and a patron who was being evicted from the premises.

Police will allege that he returned about 2.40am in an attempt to re-enter the premises. When he was refused entry, the man began arguing with security, and police took him into custody. During his arrest, the man assaulted a police officer. 

The man was charged with remaining in the vicinity of licensed premises after being removed, resisting arrest and assault. He was granted bail and will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court on Friday, 17 January 2020.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident or who has phone, dash-cam or CCTV footage filmed on London Circuit between Northbourne Avenue and the bus interchange between 2.30am and 2.45am Friday to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
