CCTV image released after attack on Brighton homeless man
8:56am Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
Police investigating an attack which left a 36-year-old man fighting for his life have released CCTV footage of a moped travelling the wrong way down a street.
It is hoped the image, taken from St James’s Street, Kemp Town, Brighton, shortly before midnight on Friday, October 26, will trigger people’s memories.
The image was captured near to Lower Rock Gardens shortly before the attack occurred.
Detective Chief Inspector Jeff Riley said: “We are particularly keen for the occupants of the car seen in the CCTV image to please get in touch.
“There appears to be a number of people in this car and I am confident that some of them would have noticed the two men on the moped turning into St James’s Street in the wrong direction.
“I would also like to hear from anyone else who recognises themselves from the CCTV image and has not yet come forward.
The victim of the assault, who is homeless and lives in Brighton, remains in Hurst-wood Park Neurosciences Centre in Hay-wards Heath and continues to improve. Detectives hope to interview him soon.
Two teenagers, aged 18 and 17, arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, remain on police bail until January 8, 2013.
Call Sussex Police on 101.
