The condition of a 27-year-old man who suffered life-threatening injuries in a weekend brawl at a downtown motorcycle club has improved, Deputy Police Chief Peter Reichard said today.

The man was slashed across the abdomen with an edged weapon during the fight, which occurred at the Wild Style Motorcycle Club at about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday. He was taken by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital for emergency surgery. Reichard said the man's condition has been upgraded to serious but stable.

Reichard said the names of four people injured in the incident are being withheld as detectives continue to interview victims and witnesses.

Also injured were a 28-year-old Guilford resident, who was struck in the head and face with a large wooden object; a 33-year-old New London man, who broke his leg while fleeing the scene; and a 31-year-old New London man, who suffered cuts to his ear and neck. These three people were treated and released over the weekend after going to Lawrence & Memorial Hospital.

The fight broke out inside the club, which is located in the rear of 130 Bank Street and has an entrance off South Water Street. The altercation extended to the club's parking lot and South Water Street.

People need to stop blaming a non violent non outlaw club for others poor actions , as you all see it started in the clubhouse until they were all kicked out and off the property of the clubhouse party , id rather hear bikes then gunshots and gang members , this is a known mc for over ten years and they never have problems rather then others starting and because a vest is seen at the scene does not mean they were involved ,i have lived in new london ct for 40 yrs and the problem is all the bar drunk gang bangers and different gangs acting a fool after bars are out , let people enjoy there partys without trouble makers , all siad thank you .

Well said john beacon!! People are bashing this club, yet they have been in new london for over 10yrs without an incident like this.

btrfly--while there may have never been an incident to this extreme--the police records apparently there have been many incidents they have had to contend with either in or near this club over the last 10 years.
