Sussex police appeal for witnesses after man is left with facial injuries after taxi ride

Police are trying to solve the mystery of how a man ended up with facial injuries after a taxi ride from Brighton to Shoreham.

The 58 year old man got into a taxi at approximately 10.15pm on Friday 20 September in Western Road, Brighton, outside Small Batch Coffee.

He was taken to the vicinity of Lidl in Brighton Road, Shoreham, where he was found by passers-by to be suffering from facial injuries by the side of the road at around 11:20pm.

The man, who lives locally, made his own way home from where he reported the incident to the police. Investigator Melanie Haulkham said: "The circumstances are not yet clear. We are trying to establish how he got those injuries, which were cuts and bruises, and enquiries are also continuing to trace the taxi and driver. If anyone saw him get into the taxi in Brighton or saw the same man getting out of it near Lidl in Shoreham, please contact us either online or by calling 101, quoting serial 1660 of 20/09. "In particular, if you drove past Lidl around those times on that Friday evening, could you please check any dashcam footage you may have? It could hold valuable information."
