Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious assault in Hastings.
A man suffered serious injuries in Wellington Place, near McDonald’s, at about 1.40am on Sunday, October 30.
Footage obtained by officers, which was also shared on social media, show the victim on the ground whilst being kicked and shouted at by his attackers.
The victim managed to return home after the assault but later attended hospital for treatment for several facial injuries. He has since been discharged.
Two 18-year-old men were identified as suspects in the following days and were subsequently arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.
Jaden Mildenhall, of Coronation Cottages, Robertsbridge, and Alexander Curtis, of Rother View, Robertsbridge, have been charged and remanded in custody to appear in court on Wednesday, December 7.
DC Karen Ticehurst from Hastings CID, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a particularly vicious assault, which left a man with several injuries for which he will require ongoing treatment.
We are eager for anyone with further information or footage of the altercation to come forward.”
