Police appeal after woman reports Worthing assault

Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a young woman reported that she had been assaulted by a man in the Lyndhurst/Brougham Road area of Worthing at around 3.30am this morning (Friday December 28).

A police spokesperson said: “It is very early in our enquiry but we are trying to establish the circumstances of what happened in the early hours of this morning and are appealing to anyone who may have information.

“This is quite a busy road, and despite the alleged incident happening at about 3.30am we’re hoping that some motorists may have been in the area.

“If you think you saw something suspicious, no matter how small, then we would urge you to call police on 101 quoting reference 174 of 28/12.”
