25-year-old Keiron Dodge from Redhill is described as white and around 5ft 9ins tall with brown hair.

Dodge is thought to have links to east Surrey, Hastings, Margate as well as the East and South East of London, including Hackney, Deptford and Newham.

The burglary happened at around 8pm on Wednesday (6 March) at a property on Benhams Drive where jewellery, a laptop and a car were stolen.

The stolen car was driven off by Dodge and another passenger. It was then spotted around 40 minutes later, waiting at a red light on a junction on the M25.

After a short pursuit, officers arrested the passenger, a 23-year-old woman from Hackney, on suspicion of burglary and possession of a class B substance. She has since been released under investigation.

The driver of the car, Dodge, assaulted two police officers and then fled the scene. Both officers’ injuries are not serious.

If you know where Keiron is, or have information which could help us locate him, please contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting crime reference number PR/45190024149.

Witness appeal after 17-year-old grabbed by man in Horley

Published

Police are appealing for witnesses and dash camera footage from the Horley area last night after an incident in Ladbroke Road.

A 17 year old woman left her home for a walk at around 10pm on Saturday 22 August, and sometime later became aware of a man behind her as she walked north along Balcombe Road from the Kings Head junction (with Smallfield Road) towards the Shell Garage Roundabout. The man is believed to have followed her into Ladbroke Road, where he asked if she wanted him to accompany her home. When she refused he grabbed towards her, leaving her with a number of scratches.

The man is described as having a tanned complexion, with short hair. He is around 5’10” tall, or skinny build and was wearing a leather jacket and jeans. He had a local accent.

Neighbourhood officers have been visiting homes and businesses in the area conducting house to house enquiries and reviewing CCTV. Police are keen to trace the man involved, as well as narrow down the time frame for the incident.

The police are keen to speak to anyone that was walking, riding or driving along the B2036 (Balcombe Road) or Ladbroke Road; between 10pm last night and 01:30am this morning. Of particular interest is anyone who has any footage (mobile phone, CCTV, dashcam or helmet-cam footage) from the route between those two times – even if you believe it does not show the man (as this may still help to focus the time frame).

Anyone who believes that they may be able to assist with the investigation is asked to contact police using the chat or report online functions on surrey.police.uk or via 101, quoting reference PR/45200089153.
