A woman escaped from a terrifying attack from a knife-wielding robber.
A 36-year old local woman was walking along Chawbrook Road, Eastbourne, at about 3.10pm on Monday when she was approached from behind by a man wearing a grey hooded top and carrying a knife.
He grabbed her and began searching her, demanding she hand over money and her mobile phone before she struggled free of him and ran away.
The woman was badly shaken but was not physically injured.
The suspect is described as white, with shaved blond/ginger hair, in his early 20's, about 5' 8", and of skinny build.
Detective Constable Andy Mountford-Laker said; "If anyone saw the incident or has any information that would assist, please contact us via 101 quoting serial number 1049 of 17/09."
