Police have arrested a 21 year old man for the sexual assault of two women attacked within hours of each other.

The Asian man was arrested last Sunday for attacking the women in the early hours of Saturday morning in Brighton town centre.

The man is also being interviewed  concerning four other sexual assaults which have occurred over the last three months.

Detective Inspector Steve Warner said: “We would like to talk to anyone who saw what happened, or who was approached by a man of similar description.”

The most recent attacks involved the assailant jumping out on the women and touching them inappropriately before running away.

Both women were severely shaken but unhurt.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Police via 101 quoting Operation Ampfield or call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
