At 12:11 a.m. May 1, police responded to a person-screaming call at Nickel’s Tavern, 2655 S. Second St. The complainant relayed that as he smoked a cigarette outside the establishment, five men approached him, with one accusing him of trying to talk to his girlfriend, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. They punched and kicked him repeatedly, leading him to call authorities for help. Personnel at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital treated him for pain to his head and neck and a cut to his right ear. He could not provide detailed descriptions of the offenders, but he was able to tab the lead aggressor as white, in his late 20s to early 30s, bald, and having a goatee.
