9:43am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
A student was slashed in a university road rage attack.
The victim had to have an operation after being sliced across the hand following a shunt in Knights Gate Road at the university’s Falmer campus.
A police spokesman said: “The victim was driving with a friend in a queue when they were involved in a minor collision with the car in front.
“The victim and his passenger got out of the car and headed to the car in front.
“One of the suspects got out of their Ford Fiesta car and approached the victim who was slashed across the hand by an unknown weapon.
“He was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton before being transferred to the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead for surgery.”
A University of Sussex spokesman said they were helping the police investigation by providing CCTV footage.
The incident took place on Friday, October 19 at 5.30pm.
Two men, both 20 from London, have been arrested on suspicion of assault and questioned before being released until December 28.
