Three men have been arrested on April 6 for assaulting a Muslim woman in Hastings on March 27. A 25-year-old woman was walking on Bohemia Road at approximately 11am when she was confronted by three men by the Hastings Museum opposite Falaise Road.

The woman crossed the road to avoid them but as she walked away one of the men grabbed her headscarf and pulled it off her head.

One of the men is thought to have filmed it on his phone.The men (aged 21, 22 and a 24-year-old) have been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated common assault.

The three have been released on bail until April 19.

PC Ian Riches, of Sussex Police, said: “Although the woman was not injured she felt degraded and was emotionally affected by the incident, which we believe was racially motivated. “We are appealing to anyone who might have been in the area at the time and might have seen what happened to contact us.

Anyone with information should email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 409 of 27/03.
