A boy was sexually assaulted and knocked unconscious by two women as he walked through a wooded area last month.

The 15-year-old was walking along Cants Lane, Burgess Hill, at roughly 6.15pm on June 4 before heading through woodland towards the World’s End area.

He was assaulted by the two women, waking up on the floor having had his clothes removed, with injuries to his head and body.

The assault was reported to police and the boy was given support by specialist officers.

Both women are described as being around 18 to 20 years old.
