Three of the incidents happened in Ferring on March 19 between 2.20pm and 3.10pm, and involved a 20-year-old woman reporting being followed; a 19-year-old woman being assaulted when leaving public toilets on the village green and a 36-year-old woman being grabbed from behind after sexual remarks were made to her. The following day an attempt was made to snatch a 15-year-old girl’s bag as she was walking near Goring railway station.
