Teenage girl raped on Brighton beach
Updated 5:25pm Monday 3rd March 2014 in News
A teenager was attacked and raped on a beach by a man she met in a nightclub.
The 18-year-old woman was attacked by a man she met in a Brighton seafront nightclub but who then forced himself on her outside on the beach.
Now police want to speak to this man about the incident.
The woman left the Coalition nightclub in King’s Road, Brighton, with the man and they both went onto the beach between the club and the Fortune of War pub before he raped her.
The attack happened between 2.30am and 3.15am on Friday November 15 and officers have been investigating a number of lines of inquiry since then to try to identify who was involved.
Despite it happening several months ago they are hopeful someone will recognise a man recorded on CCTV footage in Coalition who they would like to speak to.
The man is described as white, about 5' 8", clean shaven with short blond or brown hair and in his early 20s.
Detective Sergeant Mark Taylor said: “We think he could have valuable information that could help us with the investigation.
“If anyone knows who he is or where he is I would urge them to contact us as soon as possible.
"I would also like to speak to anyone who may have seen the man in the club on the night of the attack.
"Although this happened several months ago we are still hopeful of finding someone who can help us get in touch with the man in the CCTV.
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 133 of 15/11 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
