Woman 'seen being pushed into car' in Barnham

A report that a woman was seen being pushed into a car in West Sussex is being investigated by police.

Officers said they received a call from a witness who saw the incident in Barnham on Thursday night.

The caller saw a young female being pushed into a small car, similar to a Fiat, outside flats in Foxes Croft.

Det Sgt Ceri Spratt said: "We need to establish whether this young lady was really forced into the car against her will or if it was an innocent prank."

She said the witness could have misread the circumstances, but police needed to hear from anyone with information.

The woman was described as white with mid-length mousy brown hair, wearing a black jacket and dark leggings.
