Police have named a man they want to interview about a vicious attack in Brighton.
Hussein Bashir Ali, 25, who comes from the Hornsey area of North London, has not been seen since he was spotted the day after the attack in August. Detectives hope that people in that area of London, where he has lived for many years, may be able to help provide information that will lead to his being traced.
The attack, in which the victim was stabbed across the neck occurred after several altercations in Castle Square, Brighton, outside the Be At One bar, elements of which moved to outside the nearby NatWest bank shortly before 5am on Sunday 10 August. A 22-year-old Hungarian man who lives in Brighton lost so much blood that it was the only the first aid administered at the scene that saved his life.
Ali, whose photograph police are issuing today, is described as black, 6′, of slim build with short cropped hair and a beard growing along his jaw line and on his neck.
Detectives are also making enquiries in France, where Ali has family and has lived previously, through Interpol.
Detective Constable Gemma Holley said: ”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on Sussex 101 or email email@example.com quoting Operation Bunker. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
