A 92-year-old Brighton woman was burgled and had more than £1,000 cash stolen from her handbag.
Today (Monday 14 April) Sussex Police published an image of the man suspected of stealing her money.
A man called at the woman’s flat in Lustrells Vale, Saltdean, at 1pm on Friday 3 April.
She promptly shut the door on him but a short while later she went back to the door and found it open.
The suspect was described as white, about 6ft 2in tall and bald.
He was wearing dark clothing including a buttoned up coat.
Detective Constable Richard Valder-Davis, of the Brighton Priority Crime Team, said: “This was a despicable theft in which an elderly lady was preyed upon.
“If you saw this man in the area that afternoon, perhaps with a vehicle, or have any other information, please call us.”
