A THUG urinated on a homeless man's bedding before violently kicking him in the face.

Police are hunting this suspect after the "vicious" attack in Crawley on Monday.

At 1.30am, the man in the CCTV approached the 49-year-old rough sleeper in Haslett Avenue.

He urinated next to the victim's bedding. Then, when the victim objected, began to urinate on the bedding itself.

The thug then "violently" kicked the victim in his face, police said.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said the suspect is black and has dreadlocks.
