Dunedin Police have launched a homicide enquiry following the death of a local man at a Dunedin bar.

At approximately 1.45am Police and Ambulance officers were called to the Craft Bar in the Octagon in relation to an alleged assault.
On arrival a 35 year old male was found unconscious in the toilet area and efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
