At about 10pm on Thursday 13 June, the woman was walking along the footpath which runs between Somerville Road and Worth Park Gardens when she was attacked by a man who raped her before making off.

He is described as white, in his forties, about 5’10”, with short dark hair including grey streaks, and a beard. He was wearing dark jeans, black shoes (not trainers) and a blue t-shirt with a logo of some kind.

Detective Inspector Karrie Bohanna of the West Sussex Safeguarding Investigations Unit said;

“We have been working with the woman, with specially trained officers, to understand the full circumstances and to ensure she has further expert support and advice.

“Our investigation is ongoing and we have been making enquiries in the area. If you were in the Pound Hill, Worth Park Gardens area at around that time on Thursday 13 June, and saw anything suspicious, please get in touch with us online by calling 101, quoting serial 810 of 16/06.

“We would particularly like to identify and contact three people who may be able to help us. Following the attack the victim went to the nearby pub, Tavern on the Green, and sought directions. She spoke with two men there, one of whom escorted here to her address.

“The third person is a woman walking nearby with a black dog about 15 minutes before the attack. The woman is described as white, about 5’7” and with long dark hair, wearing a dark jacket.

“This appears to be an isolated incident for the area and not part of any pattern. Please let us know if you can help.”
