Last Saturday night a close friend of mine, Neil, and his friend Mark were visciously beaten by 3 young men near to Victoria hospital. Both suffered broken ribs and other injuries. The attackers were in a dark red or maroon 4 door saloon car possibly a Peugeot. One of the men is described as approximately 6' 2", well spoken and wearing a long tweed coat. If anyone has any information please could they post or contact Lewes Police.

Sorry to hear about your friends.
But there must be more to the story than this - what prompted the well spoken man and his chums to attack?

why would a well spoken man just attack two men in the street? was anything taken and were they provoked in anyway??
were the two 'victims' under the influence of alcohol?

Quite agree. Random attacks are extremly rare. I feel you are not telling us the whole story.

Can you give more details of the age etc of all parties etc so more people may have memories jogged?
So this car just stopped and they got out and attacked for no reason ?
if so then im shocked but like stated in other posts i think more to this story.

I don't want to go all Daily Mailish - but it seems a bit much to immediately ask the victims of an attack to show they didn't provoke it.

Why?, its an important bit of information and they can always say no.

I hope your friends make a speedy recovery but people dont randomly attack others especially if they are in a car that can be traced. You haven't mentioned any 'mugging' so I think there is more to this than meets the eye.
"visciously beaten".....were the attackers wearing gimp masks and armed with leather paddles?

Who mentioned Prince Edwards? Jonnyboy said it was near the hospital....

The entrance to Prince Edwards is virtually opposite the hospital !!!!

just a guess, jonnyboy was anything taken from the two men?? and were they drunk?

This thread is fantastic - we've got to the point where the two blokes are virtually being accused of either beating themselves up or unreasonably picking on three men in a car and provoking them. Jonnyboy, can you come back on here and let us know how things stand now?

But so is Spital Road.It's as near,if not nearer than Prince Edwards...

I was beaten up for no reason once and wasn't mugged. There wasn't more to that story so its a bit unfair to assume there has to be every time. Sometimes people under the influence or in a gang just attack people to assert their hardness and craziness. I agree this isn't common in Lewes, but it happens in cities quite often.

i saw a film where someone got beaten up once, it was a pretty good film.

Why was an attack on the person's feet necessary? urea creams and those little cheesegrater things must be just as efficient a treatment for hard skin if not moreso?

oh well, if you're going to be beaten up it may as well be outside a hospital....

Not much use after 8 or 9 pm, when the minor injuries unit is shut though!
