Police have asked the public to help them find a wanted man from Peacehaven with a history of violent offending.

Tre John Bunby

Tre John Bunby, 25, may be in the Brighton, Peacehaven or Seaford areas, according to Sussex Police.

The force said: “Police are searching for Tre John Bunby, who is wanted for breaching his bail conditions in relation to a domestic incident.

“The 25-year-old has been charged with breaching a non-molestation order in Brighton on (Thursday) 24 January.

“He was bailed until (Wednesday) 13 March with conditions not to contact the complainant. However, he has since breached these conditions.

“Bunby, a barber, of Hoddern Avenue, Peacehaven, is believed to be in the Brighton, Seaford or Peacehaven areas.

“If you see him or know where he is, please report it online or call 101 – or 999 in an emergency.

“Alternatively, you can visit the Crimestoppers website or contact the independent charity anonymously on 0800 555111.”

Bunby, formerly of South Coast Road, Peacehaven, was given a prison sentence of 23 weeks suspended for two years on Tuesday 8 January at Brighton Magistrates’ Court.

He admitted three counts of beating up a woman and assaulting PC Robert Gregory last autumn.

The magistrates said that the offences were so serious and violent that they merited a prison sentence and they were not his first offences.

They also served a restraining order and told Bunby to attend up to 30 days of “rehabilitation activity”.

He was ordered to pay £500 compensation to the woman and £100 to the police officer.

He was jailed for 12 weeks earlier in the year – last April – for a violent attack on another woman.

The court was told then that he had previous convictions for violence.
