TWO teenage girls were yesterday lured into a remote countryside spot before being sexually assaulted.
The girls had been led into woods off a country road in Surrey before the attackers, one of whom had a “Tammy” tattoo, attacked them before fleeing the scene.
The attack happened in woodland near Mill Lane, Felbridge at about 7pm after which the suspects fled.
The first suspect was in his late teens, white, slim and about 5ft 9ins with a light brown beard and hair.
He has an upper arm tattoo of a cross with rosary beads and the name “Tammy”.
The suspect was wearing a grey t-shirt and shorts and blue and white trainers.
The second suspect was also in his late teens, white, around 5ft 8, and of a slightly heavier build, with dark brown slicked back hair, a sleeve tattoo on his right arm and a rose tattoo on his left hand.
The suspect was wearing blue McKenzie swim shorts, a t-shirt and black Nike trainers.
Tandridge Borough Commander, Detective Inspector Karen Hughes, said: “We are taking this occurrence very seriously and would like to reassure the public that this appears to be an isolated incident.
“We are also aware of ongoing anti-social behaviour in this particular area and understand that the local community are rightly concerned.
“We are working hard to tackle these issues and have increased patrols and police visibility in the area.”
In separate attack police in Bournemouth, Dorset, police are hunting a 17-year-old suspect who raped a 15-year-old girl in the sea in front of hundreds of unaware beachgoers.
The attack happened on Sunday, July 18.
The offender told the schoolgirl he was 17-years-old and was from Birmingham.
He is described as possibly of Pakistani descent, with tanned skin and short dark hair that was pushed back and looked freshly trimmed.
He was between five feet and five feet seven inches tall and of a thin but muscular build and was wearing black or grey swimming shorts.
