Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in Haywards Heath.
The victim was walking along Perrymount Road at about 1.15am on Sunday, December 4, when he was approached by at least four other men, where it is alleged they demanded he hand over various items, including his phone and wallet.
After refusing to do so, he was assaulted and suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries which required hospital treatment. The group then made off from the scene with the victim’s keys, glasses, mobile phone, and jacket.
The glasses have since been found near The Star pub, also on Perrymount Road.
Officers are eager to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident.
