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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
