School girl, 14, uses her martial arts skills to fight off attacker, 35, in Sussex park
A schoolgirl fought off a man 20 years her senior when he grabbed her in a park in Sussex, by using her martial arts skills.
The 14-year-old was walking home through Tilgate Park in Crawley when a 35-year-old man took hold of her from behind, police told ITV News.
Having studied martial arts for many years, the teenager was able to escape from her 5ft-7inch attacker before punching and kicking him.
Sussex Police arrested the man shortly after the attempted attack on Saturday morning and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
