A 29-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of assault after a man was headbutted in a pub in Chichester.

The 20-year-old victim was attacked at The Vestry in South Street at about 11pm on Saturday, January 18.

He was taken to St Richard Hospital in Chichester suffering from a cut cheek, bruising and a suspected broken nose.

Within hours of a public appeal being made for help tracing the suspect, a 29-year-old man handed himself in at Chichester Police Station.

PC Gemma Bensusan said: “The man, who is from Chichester, was arrested and questioned before being released on bail until March 30 while we carry out further inquiries.

“I would like to thank the media and the public for their help identifying the suspect.”
