Police are appealing for witnesses to an serious assault in which a car was driven at a man in a Hove street.

At about 8.20pm on Friday (2 March) on the A259 Kingsway, Hove, between Grand Avenue and First Avenue, following what is believed to have been a driving dispute, a 28-year old Shoreham man, got out of his green Citroen.

While he was standing in the road the suspect, in another car, is reported to have driven his car, described as a small silver hatchback, at the victim, who was knocked down and sustained cuts to his face and wrist, and an ankle injury. He also received a head injury.

He was treated at the Royal Sussex County Hospital before being discharged later that night, but is still receiving treatment for his head injury.

Detective Constable Simon Rideout said; “We are especially interested in anyone who may have seen the vehicles immediately before to the assault and anyone who may have ‘dashcam’ footage for that time and location.”

“If you saw what happened please contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 1102 of 02/03. Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

No arrests have been made at this stage.
