Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was attacked in Selsey.

The 45-year-old woman was walking home from a work Christmas party at 1.30am on Monday, November 28, when she was assaulted by a man in High Street, near the Riviera Resraurant.

Police have said the pair are known to eachother.

She was taken to St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester and discharged after treatment for facial and head injuries.

PC Emma Howard said; “Please could any witnesses contact us via 101 quoting serial 0052 of 28/11.”

A 51-year old local man was arrested nearby shortly afterwards on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm, and was later released on police bail until 10 December while enquiries continue.
