A woman was left covered in blood with a fractured jaw and smashed teeth after a bottle was thrown at her as she queued to get into a nightclub.
Cheyenne Mottishaw was waiting outside Honeycomb in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, when a man was kicked out.
A scuffle then ensued – and he lobbed a “large bottle” in a rage, which then hit the 23-year-old in the face.
Police are still hunting her attacker and have made a fresh appeal for information.
Brave Cheyenne has spoken of the ‘awful pain’ and ‘trauma’ she suffered ten months on from the terrible attack.
Her jaw was fractured, lip split open and her front teeth were smashed, leaving the nerves exposed.
The bottle knocked her unconscious and left needing significant facial and dental surgery.
Cheyenne was scared to go out at night and unable to work for months and is only just starting to feel confident leaving the house again.
“All I can remember is getting out of the taxi and then waking up in hospital,” she said.
“I was on the floor and not responding. My friends told me they thought I was dead.
“The pain was awful. I couldn’t shut my mouth and I didn’t eat for days.
“The nerves in my teeth were hanging out so I had to wear a splint for 6 weeks to protect my mouth from infection.”
On top of the physical injuries done to Cheyenne’s mouth and face when the bottle hit her, the shock of the assault took its toll mentally as well.
She was also forced to eat using a syringe following her surgery.
A police investigation into the incident outside Honeycomb is ongoing.
Officers have released CCTV footage of the incident in a bid for witnesses and those who can identify the man in the footage to come forward.
“People just seem to think they can throw bottles and there not to be any consequences, but it could kill somebody," a police spokesperson said.
"It seems to be happening more in Sheffield at the moment.
“I would also like nightclubs to stop selling glass bottles and using glass cups so this kind of thing stops happening.”
