A 17-year-old man was hit in the nose with a beer bottle outside a downtown nightclub early today, according to Columbus police. 


The victim left the Elks Lodge at 916 16th St. N. shortly before 1 a.m. today and was confronted and attacked by a group of men, said police Public Information Officer Terrie Songer. 


He was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle, bleeding from his nose. 


No one is in custody yet for the aggravated assault, Songer said. Police are unsure why the victim was attacked. 


This is at least the second violent incident at the lodge this year.
