Two men robbed a teenager in Brighton on Good Friday (19 April), Sussex Police said today (Monday 22 April).

The force said: “Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was robbed in an unprovoked attack in Brighton.

“The 18-year-old local man was walking along Church Street when he was approached by two men described as white, aged 25 to 30 and wearing grey tracksuits, who asked what football team he supports.

“When he replied Millwall, the suspects kicked him to the ground and continued to kick him in the head.

“It is suspected others may have joined in before they all made off, possibly in a car.

“The suspects also stole the victim’s bag containing work tools and his mobile phone.

“He was left shaken and with minor injuries.

“The incident occurred about 2am on Friday (19 April) close to the junction with New Road.

“Anyone who saw what happened is asked to report it online or call 101, quoting serial 129 of 19/04.”

        I hope your son gets over this unpleasant incident but unfortunately for him, the perpetrators (if they are caught) will get less punishment if your son is not gay and the attack not homophobically motivated – strange as that seems in this wonderful town
