Double Stabbing In Brighton

Police have issued photos of two men who they wish to speak to in connection with a double stabbing in Brighton.

The assault happened just after 8pm on Thursday, September 1 and followed an argument between a group of men outside the Metro Bank in Churchill Square. This led to two of the men producing knives and stabbing two others.

One of the victims, a 22-year-old Brighton man, ran from the scene, but was pursued by the suspects down Cranbourne Street where he was attacked again. He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he was treated for stab wounds to his groin, buttock and back. He was released the following morning.

A second victim, a 24-year-old man also from Brighton, required stitches to a small wound to his back.

The suspects, who fled from the scene down Duke Street, are now being sought by police. The first is described as black, around 5', 20-25, wearing black clothing. The second is of mixed race, 6', of skinny build with gold teeth and wearing a grey tracksuit.

It is believed that both men frequent Brighton, but may be from the South London area.
