Young boy assaulted at King Alfred in Hove

Police investigating a serious sexual assault on a young boy at a Hove leisure centre are trying to trace a couple who they believe may have useful information without realising it.

The man and woman were in the reception area of the King Alfred Leisure Centre in Hove on the afternoon of Sunday (29 January) and the man went into the toilets just after 2.10pm while the woman waited on a settee. He came out a few moments later and the couple left the Centre together.

They are both described as white, and in their thirties or forties. The man had brown hair and was a three-quarter length brown jacket, and the woman had long brown hair.

Detective Inspector Jason Hazzard said; "Without realising it, this couple, who we emphasise are regarded solely as potential witnesses, may have valuable information.
