Mermaid attacked during Hastings pram race
A mermaid was assaulted during a pram race in Hastings, witnessed by dalmations, crayons and a bearded lady.
The 22-year-old woman was hit on the back of the head by an unknown object in All Saints Street, Hastings, during the Old Town Pram Race at about 9.30pm on Wednesday.
The event, in which decorated prams are pushed on a crawl of pubs and clubs, is held as part of Old Town Week, to raise money for local charities.
Sergeant Che Donald said: "The victim has stated that there were other groups of people in the area at the time of the assault. It is thought that perhaps the group dressed as dalmatians, crayons
and a bearded lady may have witnessed this incident.
"If you were there and can help call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 0697 of 2/8. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
The victim suffered concussion and was treated by her own GP.
Anyone who saw the attack is asked to call Sussex Police on 101.
