A man was assaulted while riding on the dodgems with his family at Brighton Marina.

The 32-year-old victim broke his ankle in the attack, which happened at about 2.30pm.

He told police officers he was about to get out of his dodgem he was head-butted by another man, causing him to fall backwards and break his ankle.

The attacker was with a younger woman, two small children and an older woman who is alleged to have pushed the victim in the chest.

They then all walked off eastbound towards the restaurants at Marina Village.

The man who is alleged to have assaulted the victim is described as being of Asian ethnicity, 30-35, 5' 7" to 5' 8" of slim build and was clean shaven with short black hair.

Anyone with information contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting 767 of March 3 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

I have a feeling that the 'victim' might not be completely without blame..don't you..

I think the Asian might have been provoked he had his family with HIM too..

His wife his kids and his mother and he was also of very slight build...

Driving dangerously were you mate? Did he think his children were going to be killed?

I think it was tough luck you broke you ankle but ..a lesson learnt..

Drive into a 5'7" Asians family and you are going to get burnt!

Poetic license you really are living up to your username. You have absolutely no evidence for your speculation. Just because a man is with women and children doesn't necessarily prevent him behaving like an idiot. And where do you get "wife", "his kids" or "his mother"? Nothing to say any of them were any of this. All you have is "a feeling" which you have maliciously circulated.

It doesn't mention the colour of the victim so I am guessing he was white. So your 'feeling' assumes that the Asian was the innocent in this. Was that because he is Asian that therefore he must have been provoked? Based on his ethnicity was your assumption that the victim was the aggressor then? You don't know the facts which brings me to the conclusion that racial stereotyping is the subject of your latest poetic ditty either way.

The Asian man can't have been a Muslim, we are told this is a peaceful and tolerant religion.

Oh dear, and you called me a "dunderhead" when I suggested that another recent victim of a supposedly "racist" attack (ie, the attackers were White, the victim from an ethnic minority), might have provoked his attackers in some way.

asians are not exactly any form of a minority, chinese are the worlds most populous people, followed up by indians, about a billion of them at the last guestimate. even the populations of bangladesh or pakistan rather dwarf the population of england, this problem may be a result of poor understanding of english, the fair ground ride is call the "Dodgem" cars, but commonly refered to as "Bumper" cars, easy mistake to make make.
I am just surprised as driving round the fairground ride must be infinately easier than driving through bombay, islamabad or hanoi for that matter, no overloaded lorries, buses or bicycles to add to the flavour of the moment.

You are both as bad as each other for jumping to conclusions. Perhaps wait for the facts before making your silly assumptions.
