Police are seeking a vital witness after a 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by a man as she walked along Malthouse Road, Southgate.

The assault happened on Monday morning (March 24).

A passer-by shouted at the man – who was white, scruffy and bearded – to “get off her” after he grabbed her arm and sexually touched her over her clothes as she walked to the train station at about 11am.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “If you are the man who came to the girl’s aid or if you have information please contact police on 101, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
