Witnesses sought to attack on 52-year-old man in Worthing

News   •   Aug 21, 2019 14:40 BST

We are hoping that anyone who was in Queens Road, Worthing, near its junction with Rowlands Road, shortly after 10.30pm on Friday 26 July may have information about an assault on 52-year-old man by three other men.

The victim, who sustained a badly broken jaw, did not report the incident to us until Monday 12 August, following surgery.

We would like to speak to others present who it is believed caused the three suspects to abandon their attack. Contact from anyone else who saw what happened or who may have other information would also be welcome.

Details can be passed to us online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 480 of 12/08. Alternatively, it is possible to contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, telephone 0800 555 111.

A 42-year-old Worthing man has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and released under investigation while enquiries continue.
