Police are trying to trace a woman who saw two men being attacked outside a Brighton pub.

Sussex Police said: “Police seeking witnesses to a violent incident outside a Brighton city centre pub, in which two men were injured, believe a woman passer-by, seen on CCTV, may have vital information.

“At half past midnight on Thursday 13 September officers were called to reports of a disturbance outside the Mash Tun pub in Church Street, Brighton.

“A 27-year-old man sustained a broken wrist and a dislocated elbow and a 23-year-old man who was with him sustained bruising.

“A police media appeal was issued after the attack and a 30-year-old Goring man has been interviewed by appointment, under caution, on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH).”

Detective Constable Simon Rideout said: “Our inquiries are continuing and we are especially interested in talking to this woman who is seen watching the incident.

“She was dressed in black and was carrying a white shopping bag.

“That witness or anyone else with information is asked to contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 30 of 13/09.

“The black coat seen in the images may appear to be blue but this is a misleading effect of the lighting – it is believed to be black.”

    I’ve worked it out, police do not want to solve crimes., why when an attack happens at 12.30am 4 months later they ask for witnesses, clearly they are pretending to do something but not…..they really don’t give a flying !
