Images released of men police want to speak to after man stabbed and 'kidnapped'

The Argus: Images released of men police want to speak to after man stabbed and 'kidnapped' Images released of men police want to speak to after man stabbed and 'kidnapped'

A group of men forced their way into a flat and attacked the people inside – now police have released images of two people they would like to speak to.

As previously reported in The Argus a group of men forced their way into a flat in New England Road, Brighton, late on August 1, and began attacking them.

One of the residents was punched and another was stabbed in the thigh and put into a headlock.

The men forced the third victim to go with them. They took him into Argyle Road but when they got to the junction with Preston Road the victim tried to escape.

The men followed him into Ditchling Rise and then back to Campbell Road, assaulting him with a weapon and punching and kicking him as he tried to flee before one ordered him to get into a silver Mercedes at knifepoint.

The car was driven to Upper Lewes Road, Lewes Road and Coombe Road before stopping at Pelham Court where the victim was threatened again before being dropped off.

The gang then drove away.

Detective Constable Jane Everson said: "The men in the photographs are Devante Green and Grant Jones and we need to speak to both of them about what happened.

"If you know either of them or know where they could be, please contact us.

"We would also like to speak to anyone who saw or heard the victim being chased and attacked in the streets around Preston Road before he was forced into the car."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 93 of 2/8, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

I am reading this article on the 7th of January, for a story relating to an incident on August the 1st last year, so I check the date at the top of the story in case it is an old story being bumped up and NO the dates are correct. So why does it take Sussex's finest, 7 months to ask for help?

This is not the first time this sort of story has been run. I can't even remember what I was doing a month ago, let alone last Summer. Was it a sunny day? raining? was it a Sunday or a Friday evening? The only clue given is it was 'late' and the serial is from the following day, being the 2nd so it was not reported or filed until about 1am the following morning.

I seriously think Sussex police need to take a grip of themselves and start to pursue crime with a little more urgency. In these past 7 months, these guys could have and probably have, left the Country, but that would not take much to work out because they could look at the records or CCTV images of the airports, to see if they left or not. O wait the ports only have to keep images for 6 month and then destroy them I think, and we are on month 7 now...... unbelievable policing. Another unsolved crime ......
