Man punched and kicked unconscious in Crawley
11:21am Friday 26th July 2013 in News
A Polish man suffered a broken jaw after he was punched and kicked unconscious in Crawley.
The victim was sitting at a bus stop opposite Squires Garden Centre in Horsham Road using his mobile phone at around midnight on Friday July 5 when he was approached by two men.
Both men had pushbikes and spoke with Eastern European accents believed to be Latvian or Lithuanian. One had fallen from his bike and was bleeding heavily from his nose.
The first man punched the victim without warning and as he fell to the ground the second man kicked him in the head, knocking him out.
The offenders cycled off in the direction of Bewbush Drive.
The 28-year-old victim, from Broadfield, was treated for a broken jaw at East Surrey Hospital.
The first suspect is described as a white man aged 20 to 25, 5'9" and athletic or stocky. He had short blonde hair.
The second suspect is described as a white man aged 20 to 25, 5'7" and slim. He had light shaved hair.
Police are also keen to speak to a black man who helped the victim after he was attacked. He could hold key information about the assault.
PC Rees Hopcraft, of West Sussex CID, said: "This was a vicious and completely unprovoked attack on an innocent bystander."
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call 101 quoting serial 490 of 6 July or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
