Either drill a hole in the middle and use one of those reverse screw to unscrew the broken bolt or get one at the junkyard.

A line pincher, like a firehose clamp the fire department uses on supply lines will certainly damage the line. The big squeeze breaks the inner lining of the hose. There is no detectable damage to the outside of the brake hose. The lining of the "tunica intima" is fragile. If the hose is over five years old you are setting yourself up for unexpected excitement. Just a thought.
