Police investigating a serious assault in a nightclub in the early hours of Saturday have released CCTV images of three men they believe may hold some key information.
A 21-year-old man was attacked in the toilets of the Atlantis Nightclub around 2.20am. The victim was taken by ambulance to the Eastbourne District General Hospital where he was treated for serious injuries to his face and eye.
Detective Constable David Satchwell of Eastbourne CID said: "This was a nasty attack on a young man having a fun night out with friends. We believe the three men captured on CCTV may have witnessed the assault and hold vital information for our investigation.
"Officers have been making extensive enquiries and we are now appealing for any information from people who were in the nightclub last Saturday night and may be able to help identify who the offender was."
The three men in the CCTV images entered the Atlantis Nightclub just before midnight and one of them was ejected by doorstaff from the club at around 2am due to his aggressive behaviour.
If you know who any of these men are, please contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting serial 236 of 19/02.
