Striker is questioned over attack
Plymouth Argyle's Sylvan Ebanks-Blake
Plymouth Argyle said it would be inappropriate to comment
A Championship footballer has been released on police bail after being questioned by police about an attack at a Devon nightclub.

Plymouth Argyle striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake was arrested in the early hours of Sunday in Plymouth after a doorman's head was cut by a bottle.

Police said CCTV footage from the Candy Store in Union Street was being studied to find out more about what happened.

The 21-year-old player was released on police bail until 3 January 2008.

Ebanks-Blake was part of the Argyle team which beat Norwich 3-0 at Home Park on Saturday.

A club spokesman told BBC News: "We are aware that an incident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning.

"As it is the subject of a police inquiry, we feel it would be inappropriate for the club to comment further."
