An Eastbourne teenager has been sexually assaulted as she prepared to get a bus home from Bexhill.
The 19-year-old was in central Bexhill at around 3.40pm on Monday (27 March), when she became aware of a man following her as she entered and left the Co-Op in Devonshire Road and then into Devonshire Square.
At that point, he beckoned her to the male toilets, where he kissed her on the cheek and sexually touched her over her clothing, before taking a small quantity of cash from her and walking off from the Square over the bridge to the other side of the railway line at about 4.05pm.
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. If you saw anything of what happened, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting serial 1133 of 27/03. You can also report details online or phone 101."
