Police seek information after sexual assaults in Three Bridges Crawley supermarket



Police in Crawley are trying to trace any women who were sexually assaulted in a local superstore.

At 5.30pm on Thursday (8 August) officers were called to Tesco at Hazelwick, Crawley, to a report of a drunk man causing problems.

While officers were at the scene two women reported having been sexually assaulted by touching in the store.

Investigator Oli Robinson said;

“We also have CCTV which very clearly shows a similar assault on another woman in the store at around the same time, but we have not yet identified her.

“We believe several women may have been assaulted in the same way in the store that afternoon and we are asking any such victims to contact us as soon possible either by calling 101 or online, quoting serial 1214 of 08/08.”

A 35-year-old man from Crawley was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and after being interviewed was released on police bail until 19 August while enquiries continue.


‘End the Rail Rip-Off’ says Crawley Council Leader

The call comes just as prices have been announced to increase for another year.



Cllr Peter Lamb who is also the Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Crawley has called for an end to the ‘Rail Rip-Off’ after it was announced that rail fares are to increase for another year.

Cllr Lamb says that the price of a season ticket between Three Bridges and central London has risen by over £1,100 since the Conservatives returned to Government while at the same time average real wages have fallen.

His call comes as more commuters question the quality of the services they are enduring with more and more taking to social media to complain of the lack of facilities and delays.

Cllr Peter Lamb, said:

“Like many residents, I depend upon the rail network to get to work. I know the frustration of being asked to pay out more and more every year for a service that just keeps getting worse. It’s time we had MPs who were willing to end the Rail Rip-Off and give the public back control over the nation’s railways.“
