A 14-year-old from Seaford was left with facial injuries after being attacked by two girls at a bus stop in Newhaven.
The victim was waiting at the bus stop opposite Kwik Fit on Brighton Road at 11pm on October 19 when two other teenage girls approached her and asked to use her mobile phone.
When she said no, they grabbed the phone and punched her. She suffered a black eye and a cut to her lip.
PC Julie Cocklin said, “We are appealing to anyone who was driving past at the time and might have seen these three girls at the bus stop.
“Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact police on 101 quoting serial 203 of 19/10. Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
Two 14-year-old girls, one from Brighton and one from Hove, were arrested for robbery. Both of them have been bailed until November 29 while investigations continue.
