Police are appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery that saw the teenaged victim injured in Horsham.
At about 8.30pm on Tuesday (6 February), the 18-year-old victim was walking in an alleyway between Victoria Street and Park Terrace East, when he was approached by two unknown men, who demanded his wallet and mobile phone.
The victim refused and continued on his journey, before he was punched to the face several times, sustaining facial injuries. The offenders then ran off back in the direction of Victoria Street.
Both suspects were white and wearing all black clothing, with hoods over their heads, and gloves. One of them wore black Nike trainers with a white tick.
