Four door staff at the Three Fishes pub in Chapel Road, Worthing were assaulted by two men in the early hours of Sunday May 26th. Police are appealing for witnesses.
The two men are believed to be part of a larger group celebrating a footballs awards ceremony. The victims, all men aged between 25 and 45, were trying to remove one of the assailants due to him being intoxicated. One of the staff suffered an eye injury with the others receiving general cuts and bruises. The assault took place between 12.15 am and 12.40 am.
The first suspect is described as white, aged 25-30, 5′ 11″ to 6′ 3″ tall, of stocky build and with short brown spiky hair and having a number ‘7’ shaved into the back of his head. He was smartly dressed, wearing a light-coloured suit jacket and trousers with a light pink tie.
The second suspect is also described as white, aged 30-35, 5′ 6″ to 5′ 9″ tall, of stocky build and with short black spiky hair. He was also smartly dressed wearing a black suit and white shirt.
PC David Slade from Worthing police said: “This was a totally unnecessary and deliberate assault. One of the doorman could have suffered a serious eye injury.”
