Officers want to hear from anyone who sighted a sky blue Nissan Micra registration GU63 DLO and a midnight blue Citroen Cactus registration WX16 BSY in either of the two areas between Saturday 16 February and Monday 18 February.

Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team Detective Chief Inspector Colin Pirie from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said:

“We are asking the public to recall whether they have seen either of the two cars travelling or parked in Brighton or Crawley during the three-day period.

“If you have any information about the two vehicles please get in touch with us.”

The 22-year-old victim was found in the passenger seat of a car that had collided with a number of cars near St Joseph’s Church off Elm Grove, Brighton on the evening of 16 February.

He had suffered a number of stab wounds and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital where he sadly died from his injuries the following morning.

Police have launched an urgent appeal and offered a reward of up to £5,000 for information leading to the capture of Jordan Charles.

Charles has links to Crawley and Bexhill in East Sussex as well as Croydon in South London.

The appeal for anonymous information has been launched to urgently find 23-year-old Jordan Charles, who is wanted for questioning over a series of violent incidents in Sussex.  

A string of offences in recent months includes: violence and robbery; threatening revellers with a knife in Brighton; using racist and homophobic language; spitting saliva and blood at police; ransacking a takeaway in Crawley and attacking a customer; attacking staff at another Crawley restaurant with a glass and a metal chain dog lead wrapped around his hand; punching and kicking a woman to the floor outside a nightclub; assaulting a 12-year-old girl who had come to the aid of her mother and aunt during a parking dispute.

He has also failed to appear in court.

Jordan Charles is black, about 5’ 9″, of medium build and with black hair. He is known to have links to Crawley, and is thought to still frequent the area.

Glenys Balchin, Crimestoppers Regional Manager said:

“This man must be found before anyone else comes to harm, which is why we are making an urgent appeal to the public in Sussex, Surrey and south London to help find his location. Jordan Charles is dangerous and the allegations against him are serious.
 
“It is important to remind people that assisting somebody wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution. We are appealing to anybody who may know the whereabouts of Jordan Charles to urgently tell our charity what you know 100% anonymously. Always. You can call our UK Contact Centre, which is open 24/7, on freephone number 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form.
 
“Crimestoppers has been taking crime information since our charity was formed over 32 years ago. Every day over a thousand people trust our charity with their anonymous information. Nobody will know you contacted us, only you.”
