Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses to a serious assault which left a man with life-changing injuries.

The 23-year-old victim suffered nerve damage which caused partial paralysis of his left arm when he was stabbed with a bottle in Kings Road, Brighton.

Sussex Police want to trace two men seen running up Ship Street just after the attack at 0300 BST on 19 July 2009.

The force has released two CCTV images, one of the main suspect and one of a man that was with him.

'Breathing hard'

Officers believe they both got into a taxi outside Marks and Spencer on Western Road after fleeing the scene.

Det Con Stewart Cameron said: "We are keen to talk to anybody who can either identify the men in the pictures or who has any information that could assist in helping with our renewed inquires.

"The men may have been breathing hard and sweating, and may have had blood on them when they got in the taxi.

"I am appealing for the taxi driver, or anyone with information about this vicious attack, to come forward."
