Man suffers broken jaw in street attack


A GOOD samaritan suffered a broken jaw after he tried to help a man being attacked.

Several men in their 20s were seen kicking and punching another man on the ground near the Lidl store in North Street, Worthing, at around 11pm, on Saturday, August 8.

A 28-year-old man went to intervene but he was himself assaulted and suffered a broken jaw.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident and are also hoping to identify the man originally being attacked.

They would also like to speak to his friends, who left the area with him.

Anyone with information is asked to email or phone 101, quoting serial 822 of 11/08.

Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
