Police are appealing for witnesses after a man suffered multiple injuries following a knife point robbery in Hove.

The victim, an 18-year-old man from Hove, was walking home along Davigdor Road when he was attacked by around four people between 3.30am and 4.15am on Wednesday (December 13), said police.

The victim suffered an injury to his left hand, which required hospital treatment, and cuts and bruises to his face, legs and ribs.

Detective Constable Duncan Lloyd said: “We are seeking witnesses to this incident as the victim was unable to describe the suspects due to them wearing hoods or balaclavas.”

“If you were in the area at the time and noticed a group men please get in contact with us.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to report online or call 101 quoting serial 165 of 13/12.

Alternatively, people visit the Crimestoppers website or contact the independent charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
