Police said the victim, a 35-year-old local man, was pushed off his moped and stabbed twice in the back in Albert Road.

Frazer Robson, 19, unemployed and of Cuthbert Close, Bexhill, was arrested and subsequently charged with wounding with intent and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

He pleaded guilty and appeared for sentencing on November 17.
