17 Feb, 2017 13:39 News Witness Appeals

Police are appealing for witnesses following a burglary at 'GAME' in West Street, Horsham on Thursday afternoon (16 February).

Three men were seen to walk into the store at around 3.45pm before leaving with around £1500 worth of video games. There were no reported injuries.

An off duty officer, who was in the store at the time, chased one of the suspects before being threatened with what was believed to be a screwdriver but he was not hurt.
 
A 24 year-old man was arrested by uniformed officers shortly afterwards on suspicion of aggravated burglary and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place. He currently remains in custody while enquiries continue.

Two other men are thought to have got into a Ford Fiesta before driving off.

Detective Sergeant Vicki Tomlinson said: "One of the suspects has been described as white, around 6'3" with brown hair shaved at the sides. He was wearing a dark jumper and jeans with an ear bar in his left ear.

"The other suspect is described as being much smaller, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans. If you were in the town centre on Thursday afternoon and saw anything suspicious then please get in touch."

Witnesses can report information online here quoting reference 837 of 16/02.
