Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed an
attempted robbery which took place at about 5.20pm on Wednesday (6
February) in Woodingdean.
The victim, a 34-year-old man from
Brighton, was walking alone along Warren Road, next to the car
park for the racecourse, when he was approached by three men, all
