Three men forced their way into a property in Hove and threatened those inside during a robbery earlier this week, Sussex Police said this afternoon (Friday 3 March).
The force said: “Detectives are seeking the public’s help to try to identify a man who they want to speak to in relation to a robbery in Hove.
“Once inside, they forcefully confined the occupants of the address to their bedrooms while they searched the house for things to steal.”
Detective Constable David Rose said: “This was an extremely frightening ordeal for the homeowners.
“We are trying to identify the man in the CCTV image and are keen to speak to anyone who may recognise him.”
