Two people were stabbed in the back in Brighton in broad daylight on Saturday afternoon (5 July).

The stabbings happened at about 3pm In Dorset Gardens.

A 43-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were treated in hospital. The man was released the same day. The woman’s injury was more serious and she remains in a stable condition in hospital.

Detective Inspector Mick Jones said: “There are two suspects involved. One is described as black, in his twenties, approximately 6ft, of muscular build, wearing a bright blue hooded top and dark trousers.

“The second suspect is described as white, also in his twenties, slightly shorter than the other man, slim build, wearing a grey hooded top. Both men had their hoods up.

“This took place in a busy area during broad daylight and we are appealing to anyone who was on Dorset Gardens around 3pm and might have seen a small group of people in the park area.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who was in St James’s Street or Edward Street and might have seen people matching this description in the area.”

Anyone with information is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

    There was also a stabbing on the seafront outside the Seafront Office in Brighton last Tuesday afternoon that resulted in police, blue tape and someone being taken by ambulance to hospital. Sign of the times and a fractious public packing knives on a warm sunny day when happiness should be the truth.
