Sutton United asked for help over attack in Lewes following FA Cup tie
Police are asking Sutton United FC for help in tracking down three fans involved in an attack following an FA Cup tie.
Two men were attacked after they asked the group, believed to be Sutton United fans, to stop urinating in Albion Street, in Lewes, at 8.30pm on Saturday.
Police have issued two photos of the suspects who they think stayed in Lewes after the match to drink.
One victim banged his head on the ground after he was punched in the face while the other man suffered cuts and bruises from being punched.
The man suspected of carrying out the assault is aged 20-25 and about 5ft 10in tall, wearing a dark short-sleeved polo shirt and blue jeans.
PC Paul Kelly said: "This was a mindless, violent act by the suspect which has shocked the victims and their family. The escalation from being asked to stop urinating to carrying out the assaults is shocking."
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call 101 quoting serial 1428 of 13/10. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
