Have your say

POLICE are investigating after a man was attacked while he was waiting for a lift to work.

The 30-year-old was outside in Bulbeck Way, Felpham, Bognor, when a light-coloured car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa or similar, with silver alloy wheels pulled into the cul-de-sac.

The woman driving the car and a man who was the front-seat passenger got out and the passenger started shouting at the man who was waiting for a lift.

The woman reached inside the car, and took out a baseball bat which she passed to the passenger.

He then beat the victim around the head and torso.

The victim managed to get away from his attacker, who then left the scene, but he was bruised.

It happened at 8.30am on Friday, January 30.

Police say the motive is not clear.

The male attacker is white, over 6ft, in his 30s, with dark blond hair, and lean with a long, pointed face. The woman is white, slim, 5ft 6in, with dark-brown shoulder length straight hair.
