Police are appealing for witnesses after two women were assaulted in the early hours of Friday, 27 November in Dyke Road, Hove.
Police were called just after midnight to a report that the two victims were seen crying by the side of the road near the ‘Good Companions’ pub.
The women, a 29-year-old from Croydon and a 33-year-old from Brighton, had just got out of a taxi to use a cash point when they were tackled to the ground by a man and then kicked. The suspect is described as middle aged, 5’8″ and of large build.
One of the victims was found by officers with a graze on her chin and a chipped tooth. She also suffered a fractured leg. The other woman had a cut on the bridge of her nose, swollen lips and a missing tooth.
PC Anna Dowglass said: “This was a violent assault which happened next to a busy road in Hove.
“We would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened by the Co-op cash machine at around midnight.”
Witnesses can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting reference 0013 of 27/11.
