Sussex Police: Women Sexually Assaulted in Bexhill

September 17, 2012, 4:44 pm

Police are investigating an attack on a 33-year-old woman in Arthur Road, Bexhill, in the early hours of Sunday 16 September.

The woman had been walking home from Bexhill town centre when she was approached at about 2.20am by a man who sexually assaulted her before running off with her handbag which contained a small amount of cash and personal items. The woman knocked on the door of a nearby home to raise the alarm.

The man is described as white, about 6′, with dark short spikey hair, and was wearing a cream or beige hoody and blue jeans.

Detective Inspector Hannah Willard said: “This was a very distressing incident for the woman, although thankfully she did not sustain any serious physical injury, and we are appealing for information from the public to assist us in tracing the offender.

“We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the woman as she was walking or who saw a man in the area acting suspiciously or running away from the scene.

“Incidents of this type are rare but we will have extra officers in the area to speak to residents and offer them advice and reassurance. I would encourage anyone who is concerned or has information to speak to the officers.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting Operation Grenadine or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
