Peacehaven sex assault: Suspect e-fit issued

Peacehaven efit The man who called to look at an item advertised for sale spoke with a quiet, husky voice, police said

An e-fit image has been issued of a man police want to question after a 60-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in her home in East Sussex.

The man called at the property in Peacehaven on 11 June to look at an item the woman had advertised for sale.

Sussex Police said the man left on foot after the assault, which left the victim very shaken.

The man is described as white, about 25, slim and about 5ft 11in (1.8m) tall.

He had short dark hair, a long face and quiet voice.

"We would urge anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit or thinks they may have seen him in the area to contact us as soon as possible," said a spokesman.
