Three men tried to rape a woman in the street in Brighton as she walked home from a night out.
The 23-year-old was attacked in Western Street, Brighton, on the corner of Sillwood Street, when the men grabbed her, pulled her to the ground and tried to force her jeans down.
She fought back, struggled free from the men and ran off, shaken but unhurt, Sussex Police said today (Tuesday 18 November).
The force said: “All three suspects are described as black. One had shoulder-length braided hair and was wearing a beige jacket and dark jeans or trousers.
“The other two wore dark clothing. One of the suspects spoke with an accent.”
The attack happened at 4.30am on Friday (14 November).
PC Neil Lambert, of Brighton and Hove CID, said: “This incident is being treated as attempted rape.
“If you were in the area during the early hours of Friday, or if you know who these men are, please contact us.”
