A MAN was attacked with a machete during a suspected burglary.

Police are probing three incidents in Brendon Rise and Southdown Avenue in Hastings last week.

Officers went to the scene at 9.45pm on November 28 after reports the man had been attacked and of damage at a property.

They think it could be linked to reports of criminal damage where a brick was chucked through a window earlier in the day.

Detective Constable Steve Venner said: “The incidents have left a property in Brendon Rise damaged and two people have suffered injuries following an altercation. It is believed that the incidents are linked.”

A 26-year-old man from Hastings and a 27-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary. Both were released on police bail pending further enquiries. A 51-year-old man from Hastings was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent. He was released under investigation.

Police continue to appeal for witnesses. Anyone with information should report online or call 101 quoting serial 1483 of 28/11.
