Appeal to find wanted man with links to Chichester who skipped court

Joseph Brazil was due to appear at South West Surrey Magistrates’ Court last month and Guildford Crown Court a few days later.

He was due in court following charges including impersonating a police officer, assaulting police, the attempted theft of a vehicle, handling stolen goods and public order offences.

Surrey Police are still appealing for help from members of the public to locate the 20-year-old.

He is now wanted on a warrant after failing to appear at the courts in Guildford last month.

A statement issued by Sussex Police, on behalf of Surrey Police, said: ‘Despite various enquiries to trace Brazil, officers have been unable to locate him.

‘They are asking anyone with information to contact them.

‘The public is advised not to approach Brazil but to call 999.’

Brazil, of no fixed abode, has links to Guildford, Woking and Chichester.
