POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted on the way home from the pub in Battle in the early hours of Saturday morning (July 21).

The 48-year-old was walking home from the Chequers pub when he was attacked in Langton Close at 1.30am.

The victim was pushed over by two men and sustained a small cut to his hand.

The first suspect is described as a white man, aged 18-19, 6’ tall, of medium build and with black hair.

He was wearing a black tracksuit top.

The victim described the man as having a spot on his upper lip.

The second suspect is described as a white man, aged 18-19, 5’9” tall, of medium build and with short blonde hair.

He was wearing a white Le Coste T-shirt and was carrying a black jacket at the time of the attack.
