A man has been left with a broken nose and eye socket after being attacked by two men.

The victim was walking home on Black Lion Street, Brighton, between 3am and 4am on Sunday when he was approached by a group of four men, two of whom attacked him.

Police believe that there are two suspects.

The first is described as a white male with short dark hair, wearing a light coloured shirt and had a plaster cast on his lower arm.

The other suspect is described as a white male with a tribal tattoo on his neck.

Anyone who witnessed the incident should call 101 or email 101@sussex.police.pnn.uk, quoting serial 371 of July 27.

Witness can alternatively call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Why have the Argus suddenly started using a picture of an Australasian (?) Police car on their website. Do they not have a picture of a British one?

Why use the picture of another countries police car on one article when you use an UK police car on the article above?

This is all too common at the weekends it could easily be the same gang. My friends were attacked in an unprovoked attack just walking along and minding their own business. When are the police going to get a few plain clothes police on the streets and get these idiots behind bars. For the sake of tourists and every decent citizen the streets should be safe to walk at night and basically they are NOT.

And even if the guy was cruising, so what? An unprovoked attacked is still an evil that is now too common in Brighton. Only an idiot would be unsympathetic.
