"We have been informed that even after knocking him immediately unconscious, the assailant not only continued to attack him, but began cheering in the middle of the street as to celebrate this horrific behaviour," the nightclub claimed.

"It wasn't until others approached that he fled the scene."

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed they responded to the incident about 2.10am and said the man was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

Police confirmed an investigation was underway.

The Bank said it was individuals like this why lockout laws were introduced.

"Thugs don't belong on our nightclub strip," the post said "These people and those who support them are ruining the safety of Flinders St for everyone."

As of 1.10pm today, Townsville police confirmed a man has been charged with public nuisance after an incident near a licensed premise.

Officers visited the man in the hospital and have spoken with the victim but at that time no formal complaint had been made.

Police confirmed an investigation was underway.
