Witnesses are being sought following a reported robbery and assault on a 15-year-old girl in Hastings on Sunday 24 July.

The victim was walking along Chiltern Drive at around 7.30pm when a man approached her from behind and grabbed her rusksack. He opened it and took out £25 cash and a smartphone before pushing her to the ground and running off.

The suspect is described as white, between 30-35-years of age, of medium build with short black hair. He was wearing a grey hooded top and dark trousers.

PC Andrew Hubbard said: “Understandably the victim has been left shaken by the incident. A member of the public found the phone in an alleyway between the railway station and Braybrooke Road the following day and handed it in to police.

“Anyone who saw what happened on that Sunday evening is asked to [email protected] or call 101 quoting reference 847 of 25/07.”
