Two women have been attacked in Eastbourne.
The first woman was found in Susans Road with bruises to her face and neck by a member of the public, who called the police at around 4am on Christmas Eve. The second woman, has not yet made themselves known to police.
It is believed both women were attacked by two men and a female who repeatedly punched them before running off towards Seaside Road.
A further assault took place in Pevensey Road outside the Duke of Devonshire pub involving the same individuals as the earlier incident. Police are keen to speak with anyone who saw anything.
Police Constable James Gardner said, “The unknown woman has not yet contacted police and we would like to hear from her, at least to ensure that she is safe and well. If you were in the area and saw anything suspicious then please do get in touch."
Witnesses can report any information online or call 101 quoting reference 225 of 24/12.
