A GROUP of men who were arrested following an attack on three bikers have been released on bail.

A man was left with serious stab wounds and two more were injured after the altercation on the A24 in Findon on Saturday evening.

Witnesses reported seeing three members of the Vikings Motorcycle Club from Surrey injured after they were attacked in the town near Worthing.

Earlier, the Vikings rode through Brighton heading west.

They were attacked when they stopped in Findon on Saturday night after becoming separated from the rest of the group.

Sussex Police said eight arrests have since been made by officers from Sussex, Thames Valley and Warwickshire police forces after the suspects left the scene prior to the arrival of emergency services.

The arrested men have all been bailed and enquiries are continuing.

Passers-by spoke of the moment they rushed to help the bikers after the attack.

Joanne Denise posted on Facebook: “Mike and I were out on bikes and just came upon an incident in Findon valley as it happened, three unfortunate men on motorbikes were injured in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.

“Saw cars and a van with people jumping in and driving off.

“We administered first aid to two of them until ambulance arrived (they seem like they’ll be fine, thank goodness) and Mike directed traffic until services arrived.

“Many amazing people helped.

“Please let police know if you saw anything.

“I have spoken to one of their wives on his phone and the men were riding down from Surrey with the Surrey Vikings whom we saw on [the] front.”

Anyone with information relevant to the ongoing investigation, particularly dash cam footage or CCTV footage, is asked to report online, or call 101, quoting Operation Sedgebrook.
