A PARTY-goer is in hospital after sustaining serious head injuries.
The 27-year-old Hastings man was found by police lying on the ground in Sydney Road in Eastbourne in the early hours of Saturday.
He was taken by ambulance to Eastbourne District General Hospital and remained there over the weekend before being admitted to Hurstwood Park in Haywards Heath for further treatment.
Detective Constable Phil Cracknell said: “The victim received, what we believe, was a deliberate nasty wound to his head.
“He was on his way home from a house party and we are appealing for any witnesses who were in the area around 4am to please come forward.
“We particularly want to speak to two men called Ryan and Ash or maybe Ashley who may have been at Kings nightclub in the early hours of Saturday morning before going to a party in Sydney Road.”
