Two men were attacked after a night out on Sunday morning (August 17) in Brighton.
The two men and a woman left the Volks Tavern on Madeira Drive around 7am and one of the men, a 29-year-old from Hove, went up the steps onto Marine Parade where he was approached by a group of men.
They stole his wallet but the victim followed them to outside Terraces Bar and asked for the wallet back. They then tried to steal a ring from his hand. At this point the victim’s friend, a 25-year-old man from Brighton, came to help him and was pushed over and hit on the head. He was knocked out and cut his head.
DC Leon Howe said:
“The 25-year-old man needed stitches to the cut he suffered. The suspects are described as teenagers, around 14 or 15-year-old old and black. One was believed to be wearing a hat and green trousers.
