Teenager punched and robbed in Brighton

A teenager was attacked and robbed of his mobile phone as he was walking home.

The incident happened at 3.30am this morning (Tuesday February 19) as the 19-year old man was walking up Ditchling Road in Brighton by The Level.

He had reached the junction with Union Street when he was attacked by two men who punched him and took his Apple iPhone 4. The victim went home having suffered facial bruising.

The suspects are both described as being in their late teens, one was about 5'11" and the other was slightly shorter.

Detective Sergeant Emily Hoare said; "If you were in the area of Ditchling Road and The Level around 3 to 3.30am on Tuesday morning and saw any suspicious activity, please contact us via 101 quoting serial 0100 of 18/2.

You can also call independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

Thats interesting because the Police are appealing for any witnesses for 12 previously, i.e. around 03:00 to 03:30 Tuesday morning . . . .

Lovely!! Two questions.

1: what was the said victim doing at that time on a tuesday morning? Presumably students on half term??

2: what were the assailants doing at that time in the morning on a tuesday?


Just that for most people its a "school night" and going to bed much earlier. Unless they work nights of course.
