Police hunting a group of men involved in two separate attacks in Worthing have released a photo of three people they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

They have linked two robberies committed on Saturday 8 May. In the first, a 22-year-old local man was robbed at around 3.30am near the War Memorial opposite the Post Office in Chapel Road. The victim was hit in the face and briefly knocked unconscious.

About an hour later, two men aged 18 and 20 were robbed by what is believed to be the same group near the entrance of Tarring Park in South Street. The suspects pushed the victims to the ground and demanded money, before punching and hitting one of the victims and robbing them of a camera, mobile phones and money.

DC Paul Tonks said: "The victims may have been watched and followed prior to the robberies. We would like to identify and speak to the three men shown in the photo from West Worthing station, taken at 5.42am that day as they may have information that will assist our enquiry."

If you can identify any of the men, please contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 quoting serial 419 of 08/05 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
