Sussex Police in East Preston are appealing for witnesses after a taxi driver reported being assaulted in the early hours of Sunday 28 May. The incident took place in the car park of the East Preston Social Club at around 12.50am.
According to the victim, as he was collecting three female passengers, an unknown male leaned into the car and assaulted him. The taxi driver sought assistance in the social club, but he was followed by the suspect who further assaulted him. A second male then reportedly also assaulted him while he was inside the club.
After leaving the social club, the victim found the first suspect driving his taxi around the car park before abandoning it and fleeing the scene.
Police are now appealing for any witnesses or people with relevant information to come forward. They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have any CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage of the incident.
