Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses after a man suffered serious head injuries in Hastings.

Officers responded to reports of a domestic incident within a property in St Helen’s Road around 7am on Thursday (July 11).

A man in his 40s suffered serious head injuries and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton where he remains in a stable condition.

A 27-year-old woman from Hastings was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder. She was later released on police bail until August 8.

Detective Chief Inspector Alasdair Henry said: “We believe this is an isolated incident within a flat where the man and woman are known to each other. We are not looking for anyone else at this stage.

“We are appealing for anyone who heard or saw anything on Thursday morning to get in contact with us.

“The investigation surrounding the circumstances continues.”
