Do you recognise this man?

Police would like to talk to him in connection with a burglary at a flat in Wilbury Avenue, Hove, last month.

The woman resident woke up at 6.45am on 30 October and found a man lying on the floor of her bedroom. She shouted at him and he left the flat. She then noticed her wallet containing £80, a photo of her dad and her bank card was missing along with a laptop.

The suspect is described as mixed race, bald and was wearing dark clothing.

Detective Sergeant Liz Star said: “This was a frightening experience for the victim who has been left shaken and scared. We would like to hear from anyone who knows who this man is or has any information about him or witnessed the burglary.”

    I imagine the pic is of someone using the stolen bank card.

      Eggs over easy, please! I know that it’s a camera but how did it become known that the vloke in the picture was using the card in question? Why wasn’t he apprehended there?

        Because the person he robbed would have flagged with the card issuer and when attempted to be used will have either flagged to the shop assistant or retrospectively with a time stamp which could later be reviewed on cctv. And because a declined card isn’t grounds for calling the police. Switch on
