Police appeal to find man wanted after 21-year-old held captive and attacked with hammer
This is the face of a man police want to talk to after a 21-year-old was held captive overnight in a Sussex town.
The victim was attacked with a hammer during his ordeal in Hastings overnight Thursday to Friday.
Now officers are eager to talk to Sam Simon, 21, who normally lives in Hastings.
Detective Inspector Rob Morland said: "Police were called by ambulance personnel at 1.56am on Friday where they were treating a 21-year-old man for injuries believed to have been caused by a hammer. He was taken to the Conquest Hospital in Hastings where he was kept in overnight for treatment and observation.”
Two men and a boy have already appeared before magistrates in connection with the matter and remanded in custody.
Artur Oganesyan, 22, a student of Stanley Road, Hastings and Melik Yelcin, 19, unemployed of Kenilworth Road, St Leonards, have both been charged with false imprisonment and robbery. They appeared before magistrates at Brighton on Saturday where they were both remanded.
A 17-year-old boy was also charged with false imprisonment and robbery and also appeared at Brighton Magistrates' Court on Saturday, where he too was remanded.
