Teenage girl attacked near graveyard in Angmering

A 16-year-old girl fought off an attacker who pulled her to the ground in Angmering.

The attack took place as the girl was walking in Arundel Road, near Fletcher's Field, at about 22:30 BST on Wednesday.

A man wearing a brown hooded top ran at her from behind and pulled her to the ground.

The teenager managed to free herself and the man ran towards the nearby graveyard.

Det Con Pete Parkinson said: "This must have been a terrifying experience for the victim, who also hurt her knee and lip in the fall.

"We urgently need to speak to anyone who was in the Arundel Road area on Wednesday evening who may have seen the man acting suspiciously."
