A father was robbed in front of his eight-year-old son on the seafront in Bognor

The 40-year-old was walking in Marine Drive West next to the beach at 4.45pm on Thursday, January 30 when a man approached him and threatened him.

He handed over his watch and the thief ran off towards Silverston Avenue.

The robber was white, 5' 8" or 5' 9", aged 30 to 35, thin and unshaven.

He had an Eastern European accent and was wearing a black waist-length jacket zipped up to the chin, grey tracksuit-style trousers and a close fitting black hat.

Detective Constable Gavin Percival, of West Sussex CID, said: "This was a particularly cowardly incident especially as a young boy was present. We are very keen to hear from anyone who saw anything or who can assist in any way."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 1140 of 30/1, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
