He suffered minor injuries to his cheek, eyelids and head and was treated by an ambulance at the scene.

Sussex Police said he also had his rucksack stolen.

Police said they wanted to speak to the three people seen on CCTV as part of their ongoing investigation.

A 38-year-old man was arrested and bailed after the attack.
