Probe into bogus call

Attacker followed his victim for a mile before assault in city alleyway

Have your say

A BOGUS caller attempted to steal from a woman’s house in Emsworth.

The man called at the house in Main Road and claimed to be working next door and that he needed access to the garden.

After briefly letting him in, the woman became suspicious and escorted him out. Nothing was stolen.

The incident happened at about 9.30am on Monday. The man was in his 30s, stocky, with a shaved head and wore dirty work clothes.

Call Sussex police on 101.
