Police: Man stabbed at Bridgeport nightclub

A man is recovering Saturday evening after being stabbed in the face at a popular Bridgeport nightclub overnight, police say.



Police Chief AJ Perez says the victim was attacked in the bathroom of Sazon Y Mambo by two men, one of whom stabbed him in the mouth with a knife.



Police say the club was just closing around 1:30 a.m. when the victim came running out of the bathroom with blood pouring down his face. He was discovered by a relative a short time later.



News 12 is told the 23-year-old victim was driven to Bridgeport Hospital by a family member, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.



Community activist Wayne Winston says he attends events at the club all the time, and one isolated incident is no reflection on a well-respected business.



Authorities say the reason for the attack is still not clear.
