Nov 9 2010 by Sam Casey, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
A NIGHTCLUB was shut by police after a man was attacked and robbed in the toilets.
The 45-year-old had to be treated in hospital after reportedly being threatened with a knife in the incident at Legends on Viaduct Street.
Police were called shortly after 3am on Sunday after the victim had his gold chain snatched by a group of men.
He suffered a minor arm injury in the assault.
Officers shut the club to investigate the report of the knife.
They arrested a 38-year old man, who was later released on bail pending further enquiries.
The incident comes less than a month after 31-year-old Roy Scott was jailed for four years and nine months for stabbing Legends bouncer Edward Nowell outside the club on March 28.
Witnesses to Sunday’s incident are being asked to contact Huddersfield CID on 01484 436665 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
