A TEENAGER was sexually assaulted by two men as she walked through an alleyway at night.

The 17-year-old was attacked at 12.30am on Tuesday in an alley that links Westhampnett Road to Swanfield Drive in Chichester.

Det Insp David Payne said: ‘The victim is being offered continued help and support from specially-trained officers following this frightening attack.

‘The area has been cordoned off while forensic examinations are carried out and we ask the people of Chichester for their support while investigations continue into this serious and unusual offence.

‘We are keen to talk to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen something suspicious.

‘If anyone has any information that could assist in this investigation, however insignificant it may seem, they should contact us immediately.’
