"If you know him please ask him to contact us. If you have seen him and know who he is please get in touch with us so we can speak to him about what happened.

"We want to get justice for the victim and need the public's help."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 1653 of 10/7, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
