POLICE have this morning (Monday, August 12) arrested a man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) following a ‘serious assault’ in Littlehampton.
Officers were called to an address in Hollist Chase, Littlehampton, shortly before 10am, after a report of a woman being assaulted.
The Sussex Air Ambulance was initially called to the scene, landing in the Olliver Acre playing field.
However, land-based paramedics decided to transport the injured 48-year-old from the address to Worthing Hospital.
A spokesman from Sussex Police said she had received a number of cuts to her body which weren’t being treated as life-threatening.
At this stage, it is unclear what was used to cause the injuries.
After a brief search, a man was later arrested nearby.
