Have your say

THREE men have been arrested following a vicious attack on a pub drinker.

The victim was attacked in The Sports Bar, East Wittering, in the early hours of Saturday.

The 21-year-old was with his girlfriend when he accidentally spilled a drink over a another customer.

An argument then broke out between the two men and the victim suffered a head injury during the assault.

Sergeant Jason Vickers said: ‘The victim received nasty cuts to his head for which he needed hospital treatment. The incident happened on a busy night in a popular bar and I am therefore hoping that witnesses will come forward with information to help with the investigation.’

The three suspects, two aged 19 and one aged 21, from Chichester were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and have been released on bail until March 21.

Anyone who witnessed the assault or saw a white Vauxhall Corsa outside the bar should call Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
