Pizza delivery man knifed in face

A PIZZA delivery man had his face slashed with a knife and police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

The 20-year-old driver was attacked as he made a delivery in Ore last Friday night (February 18) and needed hospital treatment after his face was cut, but luckily he was not seriously hurt.

He also had his mobile phone taken.

Later that night police arrested 22-year-old Marcus Jones, of Priory Road, and charged him with robbery and possessing cannabis. He appeared before Hastings Magistrates Court on Saturday where he was remanded in custody. He will come back to court for a plea and case management hearing on May 6.

Sgt Rebecca Bayley, of Hastings Police, is keen to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at about 9pm last Friday. She can be contacted on 0845 6070999.
