At 8.50am on Saturday (9 February) the man climbed into the rear garden of an address in Jackdaw Close, Crawley, and struck the 28-year-old woman as she came out of the back door to find out what was happening, almost rendering her unconscious, then going into the house and searching it before leaving.

It is not yet clear what if anything was taken.

The suspect is described as white, in his forties, of stocky build, over 6′, with a thick neck and short thick dark blond greying hair. He wore dark clothing.

The pole was not found at the scene or nearby and it is not known whether it was metal or wooden.
