A MAN is in a critical condition after an attack at a supermarket.

Police were called to Asda in Pegler Way, Crawley in the early hours of this morning.

The victim in his 20s suffered “multiple serious head injuries”, police said.

Officers patrolled the area and arrested a 28-year-old man from Crawley on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent.

He remains in custody while the investigation continues.

Detective Inspector Collin Garman said: “The victim has suffered serious facial injuries and remains in a critical condition in hospital.

“The assault happened in the early hours of the morning, however there is likely to be people in the supermarket at that time who witnessed what happened.

“We would like to speak to anyone who has information on the assault or who could aid our investigation to please come forward.”

Anyone with information can report it on the Sussex Police website or call 101 and quote Operation Kingsway.
