Police are seeking witnesses after a woman was attacked on a Haywards Heath footpath.

At about 12.50pm on Saturday 19 June, the woman in her early twenties was walking along a footpath leading from Chapman Way, close to the St. Francis Social Club, to Colwell Road when she was approached from behind by someone who pulled her hair and then punched her to the face.

The suspect, of whom there is currently no description, then ran away through the bushes.
