A teenage girl and three teenage boys have been arrested after a 64-year-old Brighton man was attacked on the seafront.
A detective has appealed for witnesses to come forward after the attack which happened at Duke’s Mound in Kemp Town on Thursday 27 October.
Detective Constable Andrew Beaumont, from Brighton and Hove CID, said: “This was a nasty and unprovoked attack by several men on a lone male.
“Fortunately, the victim was not seriously injured but he is very shaken by this incident.
“We are keen to trace any witnesses to the assault.
“We would particularly like a man to get in touch who may have seen the incident happen who then ran down the path from Duke’s Mound and along Madeira Drive towards the pier.”
The teenagers, who all come from Brighton, have been released on police bail until Thursday 22 December while detectives carry out further inquiries.
