Search for man after 7-year-old boy rushed to surgery following incident in Crawley



A 7-year-old boy from Crawley had to endure hours in theatre after an incident on the outskirts of the town last Friday 9th July after a man jumped out at him causing him to fall into a ditch.

Adele Norris’ young sons were out riding their bicycles up towards the Pease Pottage roundabout along the A23 around 1pm last friday when her youngest son was approached by a man with two dogs.

According to Adele, her son said that the man jumped out at him causing her son to fall into a ditch.

The young boy started to scream for help from him brother but as he got up he saw blood running down his leg.

In-fact the young boy had suffered a serious 4 inch wound to the side of his groin which required urgent surgery due to the possibility of internal bleeding.

Luckily the surgery was a success but now the young boy is suffering from anxiety and thoughts of the man coming to attack him at home.

But Adele is desperate for help from the public.

Speaking to CN24 she said:

“My son said the man was dark skinned with grey hair and had two dogs with him. My older son also said that when he was carrying his brother away he saw a woman walking her dog who may have seen something.

“If he hadn’t had surgery so quickly he could of died from internal bleeding. They had to stitch his vein back together. I dont no if he will suffer from any physical lasting damage to him but he has ASD and anxiety and so I know this will be a lasting mentally damage to him.

If anyone can help find or identify this man then please get in touch with police.”

Sussex Police confirmed they are looking into the incident saying:

“Shortly before 1.30am on Sunday (July 12), police were contacted by a member of the public reporting concerns around the origin of an injury suffered by another person. Officers have made contact with the injured person and enquiries are ongoing.”
