Police are searching for a young man who followed and sexually assaulted a teenager who was waiting to catch a bus home to Eastbourne.

The girl was in central Bexhill on Monday (March 27) when she became aware of a man following her.

The man is described as white, in his early twenties, about 6’1”, with dirty blond hair. He had a big rucksack with him.

Detective Constable Claire Linsell said, “The young woman was very upset although not physically injured and she made her way home by bus before the incident was reported to the police.
