DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton Police are looking for the man who reportedly assaulted a doorman at a bar in the Oregon District.

Officers were dispatched to the Trolley Stop located at 530 East Fifth Street after 12 a.m. Saturday.

They met with the two victims who said a patron who was kicked out of the bar, charged back in, and choked the doorman. The other victim tried to intervene, but the patron reportedly pushed him. The patron then ran from the scene towards the parking lot of Ned Peppers.

Bar staff told police he was asked to leave the bar initially because he pulled out a set of brass knuckles and was acting disorderly.

Employees reviewed surveillance video and found the man used a credit card to purchase his drink prior to the incident, which allowed police to identify him.

He has not yet been arrested. If you have any information that could help, call Crime Stoppers at 927-222-7867.
