Brighton Station Mystery Man

Police are trying to work out why a man collapsed outside Brighton station.

Detectives are not sure whether the 47-year-old from Bognor fell ill or was attacked in the early hours of Saturday morning (October 22nd).

He was discovered by police officers outside Budgens Stores in Queens Road at 1.45am. He was unresponsive and not breathing and the officers immediately administered CPR.

He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he remains on a ventilator and under sedation.

Detective Inspector Jason Hazzard said: "It is unclear at this time whether this is an unfortunate medical episode or whether something else happened to the man to cause him to become unconscious.

"We do know that he was at the station around 12.30am, having missed a train home. He did appear to be intoxicated and was seen to be sitting on a ledge by a nearby cash machine a short while later. CCTV shows him sitting there at 1.37am, but he was discovered lying on the ground at the same place a few minutes later.

"He is white, with long dark hair believed to be in a ponytail and was wearing a Ghostbusters T-shirt with a dark jacket, blue jeans and white trainers.

"We want to know what happened during that period. If you were in the area and saw the man or have any information about the incident, please email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 101 of 22/10."
