Golfers ATTACKED at Brighton golf course by MOTORBIKE VANDALS

Some golfers were attacked by two men on motorbikes at a Brighton golf course, as reported by the Sussex Police on Wednesday.

The two men rode their motorbikes on the fairways at Hollingbury Park Golf Course, in Ditchling Road, Brighton. The incident was reported at 7.30 pm when officers were called to the golf course on Sunday, July 4th.

As reported by the Brighton and Hove News, some golfers challenged the vandals but they were assaulted, with one man being punched and kicked in the head.

The riders damaged the golf course by churning up the grass of the fairways and performing doughnuts on the green, before leaving the site.

The police have released images of the two suspects in the hope that they can be identified and brought into their custody as soon as possible.

"Officers were called to Hollingbury Park Golf Course, in Ditchling Road, Brighton, at around 7.30 pm to reports of motorcycles being ridden on the fairways," said the Sussex Police.

"Some golfers who challenged the riders were assaulted, including a man who was punched to the ground and kicked in the head as he tried to get up.

"He suffered a slight head injury and a split lip.

"The riders then churned up the grass by performing doughnuts on the green before riding away."

If anyone is able to identify the men or if anyone has any information on the incident, they should contact the police online or by calling 101 quoting serial 1266 of 04/07.
