Bouncer at Manchester gay bar who assaulted a man avoided jail


Amir Naghdlou, 30, was working at Kiki bar on Canal Street at the time of the incident, at around 3.50am on 15 July 2017, according to Manchester Evening News. According to the Crown Court materials the victim was having fun in the bar with a group of men who were his friends as Naghdlou asked them to leave. The men reportedly did not hurry up to go, which caused the bouncer to knock the glass he was drinking from out of his hand provoking a fight where the doorman ‘grabbed’ the man by the scruff of the neck and the victim swung a plastic glass at Naghdlou.As the fight continued, the doorman punched and kicked the victim in the shoulder. Naghdlou was convicted of common assault. He was acquitted of a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He was sentenced to a 12 month community order and must complete 150 hour of unpaid work. The judge said that, because the victim was drunk, he was vulnerable. He also said it was aggravated because Naghdlou is an authority figure as a doorman.
