BURY ST. EDMUNDS — Local police are looking for a young man who bit another man who had intervened in an altercation between the suspect and the victim’s friend outside of a popular nightclub several months ago.

The suspect was arguing with a male near Extreme on St. Andrews Street on April 8 in this Suffolk town when the 21-year-old victim tried to break up the fight but was assaulted himself, according to a Suffolk Constabulary news release.
