Teen boy punched in the face by man in his 20s

The Argus: Teen boy punched in the face by man in his 20s Teen boy punched in the face by man in his 20s

A teenage boy was assaulted and had his mobile phone stolen.

The 14-year-old boy was with friends at around 8pm on Monday, June 9 near to the railway crossing on Eastern Road, Shoreham, opposite McDonalds, when he was approached by two men in their 20s and punched in the face. One of them also took his mobile phone.

PC James Barnes said: "One of these men is described as white, around 5' 11", between 20 and 30, muscular build with dark blonde hair short at the side wearing with a tattoo on his upper right arm and wearing a cream or white top and blue jeans.

"The other man was described as also white, 5' 8" and in his 20s, slim build with light brown hair, wearing a white jumper and green shorts.

"A passing motorist intervened, then left before the police arrived and we would like to speak to them. We also need to speak to any other witnesses who might have driven past or anyone who was in McDonalds at the time. Please call police on 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 1426 of 9/6."

It might help if the Argus told us where this occurred. Brighton has an Eastern Road but no railway line or McDonalds.
Cutting edge journalism as always.

Awful reporting. And why can't you put Brighton or Portslade or Crawley - or wherever on earth the news is happening – in the headline/standfirst?
I only want to read Brighton ones but keep getting drawn into boring ones about a boring student trek from Worthing for example..

So, whilst he was getting his phone robbed, his mates should have pulled their phones out too, to take a picture?

Maybe they should have asked the assailants if they wouldn't mind posing for a couple of photos.

It's been changed. The Argus often does that without making a correction acknowledgment, resulting in commentators look like idiots.

It still says Eastern Road though, when it should say Eastern Avenue.

Yes it has been changed very recently. As DC78 says this is a very common occurrence with these 'journalists'

A passing motorist had the time to see what was going on, park, get out of his vehicle and get involved in the situation, so the assailants were there for several minutes.

All it needed was for one of his mates to take a picture.
