Brighton Attack Leaves Teenage Boy with Broken Elbow
A teenager from Brighton was the victim of a stabbing which left him with a fractured elbow following an attack a week ago on Sunday (July 30).
At approximately 9.30pm officers were called to an address on Hallett Road where a 15-year-old boy had been attacked. He was treated at the Royal Sussex County Hospital but was not kept in overnight.
Detective constable Sarah Brewster said: “It was reported the boy had been attacked by a small group of people and a baseball bat. We are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who might have seen what happened or has any information about the assault.”
A man and two boys have been arrested in connection with the attack. Of the three suspects two were sixteen and the other an 18-year-old man all of whom are from the Brighton area. They were arrested on suspicion of GBH and have been bailed until September 3.
Hallett Road is in the Queens Park Area known as Brighton’s forgotten estate. Local members including Mrs Lucas, former chairman of the Queen’s Park Community Association have claimed this area has been neglected of resources following a concerted effort to make improvements to the lives of residents in other major estates in Brighton including Moulsecoomb and Whitehawk.
A reported gang of local residents known as the ‘Pankhurst Crew’ had risen to prominence in the area a few years ago it is not yet known if they have any association to this attack.
