A pedestrian injured by a car in St Leonards is believed to be the victim of a deliberate hit and run assault.

The 20-year-old man was walking with an 18-year-old woman in De Cham Road just after 2.30pm on April 3 when he was struck by a small silver car. He suffered head and leg injuries and was taken to the Conquest Hospital where he was also treated for a bleed on the brain. He has since left hospital.

The woman was not injured.
