Main article content
Police are investigating a report of an aggravated burglary after a man was attacked at a house in Ringmer on Saturday 2 October at 11.20pm.
The 37-year-old victim suffered a head injury after being hit over the head by a man armed with a hammer who had entered the address in Mill Mead with two other men. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a serious condition.
They demanded money but ran out of the house after being disturbed by two other occupants. Two motorbikes, a white Husqvarna and a green Kawasaki, were stolen from a garage at the property.
Detective Inspector Alex Campbell said: “This was a traumatic experience for the victim and occupants but we believe this was an isolated incident. We are keen to hear from any witnesses or from anyone who has any information about the incident or has seen the stolen motorbikes or been offered them for sale.”
Anyone who can help the investigation can report online or ring 101 quoting Operation Leeson or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
