Woman punched and robbed of hundreds of pounds

The Argus: Woman punched and robbed of hundreds of pounds Woman punched and robbed of hundreds of pounds

A woman was punched to the ground and robbed of hundreds of pounds.

The 23-year-old victim was attacked by a man as she walked in South Coast Road in Peacehaven, close to the post office, at about 2.30pm on Sunday April 20.

The man struck her before running away along South Coast Road with her purse containing hundreds of pounds.

The robber was white, in his 40s, 6ft and of average build with dark greasy-looking hair.

He was wearing a dark cream knee-length coat, a black zip-up top, blue jeans and white trainers.

Kara Cunnington, from Eastbourne response investigation team, said: "This was an unprovoked attack that left the victim dazed and very shaken.

"South Coast Road is a very busy road so there may have been lots of people passing by who saw the attack or the robber running away afterwards.

"If you saw anything at all, please contact us."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 679 of 20/4, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Another vicious attack on our streets.

I do wonder, though, about the carrying hundreds of pounds in cash around on a Sunday afternoon bit- I never do this, and I don't know anyone else who does, unless for a specific reason- is it possible that this was not just a random street attack at all?
