A woman’s been slashed on her hand in Eastbourne.
The 22-year-old was with two friends outside the Arndale Centre in Terminus Road just after midnight last Wednesday (5 April), when a man approached them. She told him to go away and as she raised her hand towards him, he cut her using what’s believed to have been a knife.
The three women went to a taxi office where the police and an ambulance were called. The woman was taken to hospital and was discharged later that day.
The suspect is described as a black man, aged 25-30, wearing dark trousers and a hooded top. He had on distinctive white or silver over-ear headphones.
Detective Constable Karen Colbran said, "This incident has left the victim feeling extremely frightened and we are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen someone matching the suspect’s description."
