Man seriously injured following assault in East Grinstead
Police have released this CCTV image of two men sought in connection with a serious assault in East Grinstead.
At about 12.14am on Sunday (5 November), police received a report of a fight involving a number of people in London Road.
A group of friends had been walking past The Bridge Bar when they became involved in an altercation with two unknown men.
This then led to one of the group being assaulted, and his four friends were also assaulted as they attempted to intervene.
The primary victim, an 18-year-old local man, was taken to East Surrey Hospital in Surrey with serious facial injuries, where he remains at this stage.
Police are appealing for anyone who recognises the men pictured, or who saw what happened, to report it online or call 101 quoting serial 10 of 05/11.
The first suspect is described as white, aged 19-21, about 5’10”, of average build. He had short dark spiky hair, and wore a dark coloured parka jacket with ribbed stitching.
The second suspect is described as white, aged 19-21, about 6’1”, of average build. He had brown hair with a centre parting, and wore a dark coloured jumper with a shirt underneath, and dark coloured trainers with white tips.
Both men are believed to have been drinking in The Bridge Bar earlier that night, and travelled to Lingfield in Surrey via taxi following the attack.
