Man attacked and cash stolen from home in Worthing

A man was attacked in his home in Worthing by three masked people who stole a quantity of cash.

The house in Old Worthing Road, East Preston, was broken into around 7.45pm on Tuesday (November 14), disturbing the victim who challenged the men in the kitchen of the property.

He was pushed back into his living room on to a sofa and assaulted a number of times by a man who demanded money.

The trio were all dressed in black and wearing balaclavas that showed only their eyes. They were all around 6' and of medium build. The man who assaulted the victim was wearing black Adidas-branded tracksuit bottoms.

They made their escape running east along Old Worthing Road, turning left into Arlington Crescent. About half-a-minute later, a silver Mercedes C Class without lights on drove out of the crescent and turned east.

Anyone who witnessed any aspect of the incident or has any information is asked to report online or call 101 quoting serial 1310 of 14/11.
