Witnesses sought after house burglary
Police were called to a property in Barnham Road, Eastergate, near Chichester on Friday 28 July at 3.06pm after the glass on the front door had been smashed.
The incident happened between 8am and 3pm.
Crime investigator, Thomas Carpenter, said: "The offender gained entry to the back garden and smashed the glass in the front door with a sledgehammer that was left outside the property.
"The glass smashing is likely to have made a significant amount of noise at a time when the neighbouring sports field would have been busy.
"Fortunately on this occasion nothing was stolen. I am urging anybody who saw or hear anything suspicious, or has any information regarding the burglary, to contact police."
