Alert message sent 26/03/2019 14:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

Witness Appeal;

A 16-year-old boy received head and back injuries in a seemingly unprovoked attack in Hassocks on Friday evening, 15 March.
Paramedics alerted us after they were called to Keymer Road shortly before 11pm. The victim, who had sustained several blows, was taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Brighton for treatment and remained in hospital overnight.
We are linking the attack to the criminal damage of a telephone kiosk in the vicinity of Sainsbury's Local and would be interested to hear about a group of youths who were in the area around the same time.
Please report online or call 101 quoting serial 1319 of 15/03.


Adur and Worthing Police have reassured local people in Henfield which is close to the MidSussex Police district boarders that action has been taken over reports of a man in a white van approaching women and asking them to get in.
Following enquiries by officers a 46-year old local man has been traced and warned about his conduct.
Inspector Sarah Leadbeatter said; "However, while no specific offences have been identified at present, our enquiries are continuing, and meanwhile we have taken action by warning this man that behaviour of this kind is at the least offensive, causing shock and distress to the woman involved and concerns among the wider community.
"Anyone who has concerns or information on learning of this matter can contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 799 of 19/03."
