Police are trying to trace a customer who barged past protesters who were glued to the doors of a bank. Protesters had stuck one hand to either side of a doorframe and linked their hands to create a human barrier across the entrance of RBS bank in Castle Square, North Street, Brighton, during the Smash EDO protest on the afternoon of Wednesday October 13.
Detective Constable Rex Petty said: "The protesters' barrier prevented people leaving and disrupted the work of the bank, upsetting both staff and customers. The pair left after a customer barged past the couple, who unwittingly caused the protesters' skin to be left on the doorframe. I am keen to trace this man, as he may be able to provide further evidence. Anyone who was in the bank at the time of the offence who has yet to speak to us is urged to come forward."
A 27-year-old man from Manchester and a 22-year-old woman of no fixed address were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass and criminal damage two hours after the incident.
They have been released on bail until November 11.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 quoting serial 847 or anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
