Arrests made in Brighton Beach sexual assault and rape cases

In Brighton, the police have pressed charges against two individuals in connection with a reported rape and sexual assault that occurred last month on the beach.

On Sunday, September 24th, a young woman reported that she had been raped by a man during the early hours of that morning near the Sea Life Centre on the promenade. Around the same time, another woman of a similar age reported a sexual assault on the nearby beach.

Both incidents prompted an immediate investigation, and the victims received support from specialized officers.

Altaib Hamed, aged 25 and residing on Lewes Road in Brighton, has been charged with rape and is currently in custody. Bader Saleh, aged 23 and residing on Percival Terrace in Brighton, faces charges of sexual assault and is also in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Luke Kyriakides-Yeldham said: “Both of these women have shown incredible bravery in coming forward and supporting this investigation, which has helped us to bring two people into custody who will now face trial.

“Everyone should be able to enjoy a night out in safety and we remain committed, alongside our partners, to keeping Brighton and Hove a safe place for women and girls and an inhospitable city to those who wish to cause harm.

“To report a crime or any suspicious behaviour on a night out, please contact a police officer or security staff. Always dial 999 in an emergency, or report online or via 101.”
