A young man has been left with a fractured eye socket after being attacked with his own skateboard in Langney.
The 21-year-old was at the skate park in Shinewater Park, when they were confronted by a group of 10-15 youths. The altercation moved to the nearby basketball court, where he was hit in the face, which also left him with bruising to his face and ribs. His friend also sustained bruising to his body.
It happened at around 6pm on Sunday 24 September.
Investigator Bernadette Peters said, "This was a nasty and unprovoked attack on a young man who had simply gone to use the skate park.
"We are currently making active enquiries and if anyone saw what happened, or has any other information, we ask them to contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 418 of 25/09."
No arrests have been made at this stage.
