Men released as police make another request for witnesses to OAP death

Two remain under investigation.



Detectives are continuing to appeal for witnesses as they investigate the death of an elderly man who suffered a cardiac arrest following a robbery in the street in Crawley.

Police were called to The Boulevard at 3.48pm on Sunday (22 July) by ambulance service colleagues who were dealing with a 77-year-old man in a mobility scooter who was unwell.

It is believed that shortly beforehand he had been involved in an altercation close to the public toilets near to Marks and Spencer.

The victim, who has not been formally identified, was taken to St George’s Hospital in London, where he died shortly before 9pm. The incident is now being investigated as manslaughter.

Three men were arrested on suspicion of robbery and manslaughter. A 36-year-old man from Crawley has since been released without further action. A 25-year-old man and a 41-year-old man, both of no fixed address, have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information about it or those involved is asked to report online or call 101 quoting Operation Salzburg.
