Today, Sussex Police said: “A man sought for interview by detectives in Sussex about an attack on another man in Eastbourne, has been arrested in Scotland.

“Alex Evans, who was wanted in connection with an assault that happened outside the Cameo night club, in Langney Road, Eastbourne, on (Saturday) 7 March this year, was arrested in Aberdeen.

“(He) has appeared in court charged with theft and burglary offences there and has been remanded in custody pending trial.

“Sussex officers will seek to interview him in due course.”

Evans, of no fixed address, is jointly accused with Jodi Hannan, 31, of Dundee, of breaking into a clothes shop in Aberdeen.
