Assault outside nightclub alleged

Benjamin D. Sampson, 26, of Philadelphia, is accused of assaulting two different people on the same night outside Imbibe, 321 Pine St., on Jan. 1, city police said.

One person Sampson allegedly struck sustained a broken nose and a black-and-blue right eye, while the other man sustained deep scratches on his face, an affidavit said.

Sampson was sent a summons to appear before District Judge Allen P. Page III to face charges of simple assault and harassment, but he failed to appear for court. He recently was taken into custody on an arrest warrant and was released on $5,000 bail. He is set to appear before Page for a preliminary hearing on April 10.
