An 18-year-old was stabbed.



Police are appealing for witnesses to the stabbing of a man outside a pub in Crawley in the early hours of Saturday morning (September 29).

Officers were called to The Grasshopper in Ashdown Drive, Tilgate, at 12.19am to reports of a large group fighting outside the pub where an 18th birthday party was taking place.

It was reported that a man had been attacked and injured.

The 18-year-old victim, who was not the celebrant, sustained a stab wound to his abdomen.

He was taken to the East Surrey Hospital at Redhill for treatment and discharged later on Saturday.

Detective Constable Dan Richardson said:

“There were a lot of people at the pub and a large group outside at the time of the assault. If you saw what happened or you have any information about the incident, please report online or call 101 quoting serial 26 of 29/09.

“Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”


Urgent appeal as £5k reward offered to find violent man who ransacked Crawley shop and assaulted child



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.
