Police are seeking witnesses to a late night attack on a man in Horsham Park which has left him with a serious eye injury.

At about 11.30pm on Thursday 9 September, the local man aged 23 was walking through the park when he was attacked near the 'Kaya In The Park' cafe by two young men, described as being in the late teens or early twenties, wearing black tracksuits.

They punched and then kicked him as he lay on the ground, stealing his keys and mobile phone before making off.

He received hospital treatment for his injuries, including multiple fractures to an eye socket, which will require specialist treatment

Detective Constable Charlotte Carter said; "This was a vicious attack and our enquiries are continuing. We believe there were also several other youths of similar age present.

"The cafe was still open at that time and had a number of customers. If you were there or nearby and saw anything of what happened, please contact us"
