Police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly couple were burgled in Worthing.

The incident occurred between 10pm and 11pm on Sunday (17 March), when the occupants were in the living room of their home in Hall Avenue, Salvington.

A window was forced open and an unknown quantity of jewellery was stolen.

PC David Slade said: “This is a despicable thing to do and if anyone saw anything suspicious either around this time or the days leading up to it, such as people sitting in vehicles near the vicinity, we would encourage them to contact us.”

Anyone with any information can report it online or call 101, quoting serial 1180 or 17/03.
