Police would like to speak with two good samaritans who helped a victim of assault in Hampden Park on Saturday (October 3).

The passers-by stopped their vehicles to help a man who had been assaulted at the junction of Brodrick Road and Brodrick Close at around 1pm.

“We want to find out what they may have seen of the incident, and would also like to talk to anyone else who was in the area at the time and who may have information about this assault.”

The motorists and anyone who may be able to assist are asked to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101, quoting serial 608 of 10/04.
