Mitch Claydon struck with his second ball, knocking out Joe Gatting's off stump, and Sussex closed on 60 for three.
Graham Onions struck twice in four balls in the ninth over on his return from a broken finger. He had Chris Nash caught at first slip by Paul Collingwood then pinned Mike Yardy lbw for a duck. Sussex are 28 for two.
Durham are all out for 245, five runs short of a second batting point. Richardson (31), Arshad (30) and Chris Rushworth all went quickly after tea, then the recalled Mitch Claydon made batting look easy in making 18 not out. After being bounced twice by Jimmy Anyon, Graham Onions tried to pull another short one and lobbed a catch to mid-on.
Durham are 214 for six at tea, with Michael Richardson on 31 and Usman Arshad playing confidently on 20. Both have been beaten by Steve Magoffin, who is still swinging the ball after 64 overs and must be wondering how on earth he has taken only one wicket.
It wasn't to be. Hatchett has continued his excellent spell by having Mustard caught at second slip for five. Durham wobbling on 170 for six.
The Hatchett man has struck again - Paul Collingwood lbw for one. Durham are 164 for five and need a contribution from Phil Mustard.
Durham suffered a blow when Mark Stoneman, the only batsman to look comfortable, was bowled for 96 by left-armer Lewis Hatchett. That made it 154 for four.
MARK Stoneman passed 50 for the ninth time this season in the championship after Durham chose to bat first against Sussex and reached 97 for two at lunch.
After following his century at Scarborough with a first ball duck in the second innings, Stoneman opened up fluently before throttling back to be on 54 at the break.
He scored his first 41 runs at a run-a-ball before reaching 50 off 69 deliveries with ten fours, twice hitting three boundaries in an over.
Keaton Jennings made only two before again falling lbw, as he is wont to do. He missed an in-swinger from James Anyon, which might have had a passing acquaintance with leg stump.
Scott Borthwick scored nine before edging a drive at Steve Magoffin to the wicketkeeper and Will Smith was fortunate when a similar shot off the same bowler flew just wide of the slips. He was on 22 at the break
