87 year old woman assaulted in Hastings

A very brave lady, that's how police have described the 87-year-old widow who was assaulted while collecting the mail outside her Frimley home in Hastings, dragged back inside her house and sexually violated.

It's here at this Frimley home that a grandmother of eight was assaulted and then subjected to a violent sexual attack within her own home before her son found her several hours later.

The attack saw her admitted to hospital with serious bruising.Police say they are leaving no stone unturned to catch the culprit, but have very little information to go on.

Residents we spoke to in the area are extremely upset and angry that such a crime has taken place in what they describe as a tight little hub.
