Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenage boy was robbed in a street in Burgess Hill.
The 14-year-old was approached by another boy, who is known to him, in Park Road around 4.30pm on Thursday 28 December.
The suspect demanded the victim hand over items including cash and a vape. He then assaulted him, before a member of public stopped to intervene.
The victim was taken to hospital as a precaution and later discharged.
Police increased patrols in the area in response to the incident and will continue to respond to reports of serious violence.
The suspect – a 15-year-old boy from Burgess Hill – was arrested on Tuesday 2 January on suspicion of robbery. He has since been bailed, pending further enquiries.
Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to report it online or call 101, quoting crime reference 47230252988.
