Man left seriously ill in hospital following Bexhill-on-Sea street robbery


A 38-year-old member of the Bexhill-on-Sea street community is seriously ill in hospital after being attacked and robbed in the town's Devonshire Square on Friday afternoon (9 August).

The victim, of no fixed address, had visited a local pharmacy to collect a prescription when he was approached by three other men between approximately 2.15pm and 3.15pm.

When he refused to hand over tablets he was punched unconscious and had the medication stolen from him.

He was not taken to hospital until Sunday evening (11 August) where he was found to have a head and facial injuries.

Officers investigating the incident want to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who may have closed circuit television (CCTV) or dash-cam images that may assist with their enquiries.
