In the early hours of Sunday 13 September last year the 18-year old woman from Horsham woke up in a disorientated state, in an unknown flat close to Brighton railway station. She had been out in Brighton celebrating a friend’s birthday the night before. She was extremely distressed, left the flat and made her way home.

She had last been seen in Coalition Club on the Lower Esplanade shortly after midnight in the company of a man described as black, in his 20’s, approximately 6ft, and of muscular build with very short hair.

Detective Constable Melanie Wauchope said; “We are keen to identify and interview this man.

“We would also still like to trace and speak to a man and a woman who the victim stopped at about 5.30am that morning to ask for directions to the railway station, which was nearby.”
