Two men are being hunted for an attempted robbery in a Brighton street.

They attacked a man in his forties as he walked along Islingword Road by the junction of Wichelo Place in Hanover.

They punched him in the face and knocked him to the floor.

When he got up and ran off, one of the muggers chased him and shouted: “Give me your money!”

The victim fled up Islingword Road towards Queen’s Park and ran into the road, waving his hands in an attempt to attract help and attention.

The suspects were described as white, aged 17 and 23 years old, about 5ft 10in tall and of slim build. Both were wearing grey hooded tops.

No money was stolen.

Sussex Police urged anyone with information to call 0845 6070999.
