Man robbed during sexual assault in West Sussex
A young woman is being sought by police after sexually assaulting and robbing a man in a seaside town as he walked home. [12 April 2012]
The 60-year-old victim was approached by the woman outside the Royal Norfolk Hotel in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, at about 11.40pm on March 31.
He became nervous after noticing a man nearby but, as the victim went to walk on, the woman grabbed his arms to stop him, Sussex Police said.
She then pulled him close by forcing his right arm behind her and made him hold her bottom before touching him, a police spokesman added.
The woman then removed his wallet from his coat pocket and threw it to the man, who took GBP25 in cash before throwing it back.
A passer-by stopped to ask the "extremely distressed" victim if he was fine but he was scared and walked off, the police spokesman said.
'Scared by what happened'
PC Trevor Pritchard, of Sussex Police, said: "Although the victim wasn't physically injured, he was left extremely distressed and scared by what happened."
Police appealed for help in tracing the man who offered help to the victim. He was about 23 years old and around 6ft, with broad shoulders, and was wearing a leather jacket.
Meanwhile, the woman is described as white, English, aged about 20, around 5ft 6in and of medium build, with light brown hair that was tied up on her head.
She was wearing a mauve top with flowers, pale blue jeans and dark, dirty trainers. The man is white, English and about two inches taller than the woman.
He is described as being of skinny build, aged about 20, with a shaved head, and he was wearing a grey zip-up hooded top.
