Police release e-fit of Tilgate burglary suspect

Police have released an e-fit image of a man in connection with a burglary in Tilgate Way, Crawley.



Officers were called about 3.45pm on Wednesday 5 September, after a man carrying a metal bar, approximately two feet in length, was seen at the front door of a house.

One of the occupants of the house arrived home, at which point the suspect made off from the scene down Garrick Walk.

On entering the property, it was discovered entry had been gained and an untidy search had been made, however nothing is believed to have been stolen.

The incident follows a number of other sightings of a man – believed to be the same person – acting suspiciously in the area recently.

The suspect is described as Asian, about 5’11”, of medium build, aged 30-40, with dark brown messy hair and facial hair.

He was dressed in all black clothing, including an Adidas hoody, Adidas tracksuit bottoms and black Nike Air Force trainers.

If you recognise the suspect or have any information about the incident, please report it online or call 101, quoting serial 898 of 05/09.

You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or report it online.

There will be changes to the days some sites are open. Burgess Hill, Chichester, Worthing, and Crawley will open for six days a week during the winter months. Chichester will close on Tuesdays and Burgess Hill, Worthing, and Crawley will close on Thursdays.

Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

“The changes are based around the demand for services at different times of the year.

“Reducing opening hours during the quieter winter allows us to keep sites open for longer in the summer months when demand is at its highest.”
