Police are investigating

It is believed the assault followed a road rage incident on the roundabout that joins Fitzalan Road and Maltravers Road, between the drivers of a red Hyundai car and a Yamaha 125cc motorbike.

An 18-year-old man from Arundel has been arrested on suspicion of assault, driving a vehicle without insurance and driving a vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Anyone who saw what happened or who noticed either vehicle being driven shortly beforehand, or who may have relevant dash-cam footage, is asked to contact Sussex Police online or by phoning 101, quoting 605 of 19/12.
