Police seek man for spitting in woman’s face in Brighton
A young man is wanted for questioning by Sussex Police after a woman reported being spat in the face in the Brighton city centre.
The nineteen-year-old woman was waiting at one of the bus stops by Old Steine with a friend at around 3:45am, Tuesday 16th October, when the man approached them asking for a hug.
She declined the man’s request and got onto the bus, but then the man followed her on board and spat in her face, before leaving the bus.
PC Mark Butcher said; “He is also suspected of having been part of a group of three youths or young men who had just been harassing two unknown women at the same spot, trying to sell them drugs and threatening to expose themselves.”
The suspect is described as being of mixed race, about 20, skinny, with black short hair and wearing dark clothing that included a hooded top and a puffa style coat.
PC Butcher also said Sussex Police would like to find him and would also like to trace the two other women, so if you know who he is or if you were also approached by that group, please contact them.
If you have any information contact Sussex Police either online or by calling 101, quoting serial 164 of 16/10.
