SHOCKING pictures show the horrific injuries a teenager suffered after a thug smashed a bottle over her head during a night out.

Kalicia Powell fears she may have been scarred for life when a fellow female reveller is said to have lured her outside as she was having drinks with pals on Boxing Day near her home in Castleford, West Yorkshire.



The 18-year-old claims a man repeatedly barged into her on the dancefloor before she asked him be more careful and carried on dancing with her friends.

She claims an unknown woman then asked if she'd wait outside for her when the club closed 20 minutes later – only later realising that she appeared to be friends with the man.

Once outside, Kalicia says that another woman with the same group attacked her, forcing her to defend herself, before a glass bottle was launched at her head.

The college student then rushed to A&E in the early hours of the morning where doctors glued the gash shut and put adhesive strips over the top to hold it together while it heals – leaving her in tears as she felt 'ugly'.

She has now shared shocking photos of her bloodied face and black eye to warn about the seriousness of this kind of attack.

Kalicia said: "Me and my friend went out and made our way back to the local.

"We were inside the nightclub on the dancefloor and obviously you expect a little nudge or whatever when you're on the dancefloor but it kept happening constantly.

"So I turned round to the boy that was barging into me and said 'look mate, can you calm down a bit?'.

"He just looked at me with that look like he was going to say something and I just thought 'whatever, leave it'.

"I turned back round to my friend and carried on dancing and then I felt a tap on my shoulder and it was this girl – she was nice to me and said 'will you wait outside for me?', so I said 'yeah'.

"So me and my friend went outside when the club shut about 20 minutes later and my friend said 'there's that girl', so I went over and said 'what did you want me to wait outside for?'.

"Her friend turned round to me and said 'me and you in the alleyway now where there's no CCTV'."

Kalicia claims the woman then hit her so the pair ended up in a scuffle, prompting the bloke who had bumped into her to intervene.

However suddenly a bottle was thrown at her head, leaving blood gushing from her forehead – which she says was thrown by one of the group.

Kalicia said: "It hit my forehead at the start of my left eyebrow and my friend was screaming 'Kalicia you're bleeding!'

"It wasn't even like it started trickling down my face, it went all over me and my friend."

The teen claims the unknown woman was just five steps away when she threw the bottle at her, instantly splitting her forehead and leaving her covered in blood.

A bystander called the police who arrived quickly and bandaged Kalicia's wounds before she says they advised her to call for someone to take her to hospital.

Her friend's parents then dropped them off at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield where doctors glued the gash shut.

Kalicia claims the wound and resulting black eye still hasn't fully healed, two weeks on from the incident, but the swelling has started to go down.

Kalicia said: "I can remember what happened but I can't remember it hurting. When the police sat me down I was just like 'what the hell has just happened?'

"I kept saying to my friend 'just show me, it can't be that bad' and when she showed me I was like 'you best take me to hospital now'.

"With how the police patched my head up luckily it closed up enough itself and then I just had it glued shut and strips put over it.

"I've still got the strips on and I've still got a purple bit under my eye but the swelling is going.

"I can't even wash my own hair because I'm not allowed to get the strips wet because they're holding it together while it heals and if they come off it could open up again.

"I'm worried about having a scar on my face because I don't even really like to wear makeup unless I'm going out.

"I had work on New Year's Eve and I was sat up until 6am crying because I didn't want to go to work because I felt really ugly."

The teen says the incident has put her off going out after only turning 18 and starting to go on nights out in November.

Fearing she will be left with a scarred face, she now hopes to urge people not to resort to weapons like glass bottles.

Kalicia said: "I stayed in on New Year's Eve because I thought 'just avoid it'. I'll go to the pub but I think it'll take me a while to go out-out again.

"I should be able to go out around my own town without worrying. It's not fair at all.

"I think it's disgusting behaviour and it could've been a lot worse."
