A man has been airlifted to hospital after being stabbed in the stomach in what police believe to have been a fight in a car park.
The Air Ambulance Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) landed in the Memorial Gardens at around 4.45pm today (Friday October 4).
A crowd gathered to watch as the helicopter took off to ferry the victim to hospital.
Sussex Police officers cordoned off much of the car park in The Broadway opposite St John’s Church while investigations were carried out.
There are cordons along The Broadway and blood spots can be seen on the pavement in Haslett Avenue West.
A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “The man walked into the Walk-In Centre in Haslett Avenue West and they called an ambulance.
“The car park is being preserved as a crime scene.
“There are suggestions it was a fight in the car park between multiple men.”
Witnesses are asked to contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 1201 of 4/10.
