An 18-year-old woman has been attacked near a railway station in the early hours of the morning. The teenager was walking down New Park Avenue from Bexhill railway station when she was grabbed and pushed to the ground. When the victim screamed it disturbed neighbours and the attacker ran away.
The man is described as white, in his 20s, of slim build and was wearing casual clothing. Detective Inspector Viv Johnson said: "This was an incredibly distressing incident for the woman and we would appeal for information from the public to assist us in tracing the offender."
