Police are investigating the killing of a cat, which was found with “fatal injuries” to its stomach in Shaftesbury Road, Brighton on Monday evening.

The attack was in the same area as another 14 killings which are attributed to the cat attacker.

Animal charity Snarl has warned people in the area to be vigilant and keep their cats inside at night.

Boudicca Rising, founder of the charity set up investigate another cat killer, said: “It looks to me like it’s someone local who is doing this.

“The attacks are stabbing injuries whereby the cat is left to walk home alive to its owner.

The Brighton cat killer is thought to operate around the Ditchling Rise area of Brighton.

Sussex Police has not confirmed the attack is linked to the serial cat attacker.
