At 5.15am on Saturday (16 May) the 24-year old local man was sitting in Madeira Drive, Brighton, just east of Volks Club, when he was approached by two men who asked him if he wanted to buy any drugs.

When he refused to do so, they attacked him and stole £70 cash.

He was kicked twice in the face but declined hospital treatment.

One of the suspects is described as Hispanic, in his mid-twenties, 5ft 5in, and stocky, wearing a blue polo shirt and a dark blue cap back to front. He had a scar on his right cheek.

The other suspect is described as 6ft and of slim build.

    Drug dealers usually sell drugs, so I’ve been told. 🙂
