A MAN was stabbed inside a Croydon town centre club in the early hours of Easter Monday. The incident took place on April 21, at the 12-20 nightclub, on Crown Hill, at approximately 2.30am and resulted in what police describe as "mass disorder" inside the venue which continued out into the street. However, 12-20's manager said there was no evidence the incident took place within the club and there was nothing found on CCTV. Several people were arrested and the investigation is still ongoing but the police have now asked Croydon Council's licensing committee to suspend the club's licence. In the police report, compiled by Croydon Metropolitan Police Service licensing officer PC Darren Rhodes, it states that the venue, formerly known as Shooshh, is "the site of disorder most weekends". Investigating officers noted that at least two of the CCTV cameras were broken and one was pixelated, while it suggests the people concerned in the incident did not have their IDs scanned. It also states: "The Metropolitan Police have no confidence in the management of the premises. Having considered all options available to me I am of the opinion that this matter is so serious that a standard review procedure would be inappropriate and would not address the risk of further serious crime and disorder were the premises to reopen."
