Hunt for good Samaritan who helped distressed teen in Horsham


Police are appealing for a good Samaritan to come forward after they helped a teenager in distress on Wednesday (February 8).

Officers said an 18-year-old woman was picked up at about 7.30pm in Rushams Road, Horsham, after she got out of another car. The good Samaritan drove the woman to another location in Horsham and dropped her off.

Detective Sergeant Sian Harding said: “We believe the woman got out of another car and was kindly picked up in a car and we are keen to trace this driver as they may be able to help with our investigation. We believe the woman was with someone she knew before getting the lift. We have spoken to her and are working with her to establish what happened. We have arrested one man and believe there is another man involved.”

A 36-year-old man from Crawley has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap and has been bailed until April 5 while investigations continue.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police quoting serial 1168 of 08/02.
