A pensioner was pickpocketed in a “cowardly” attack after withdrawing money from a cash machine.

Officers were called to Montague Street in Worthing after a man in his 80s said he was approached by a stranger.

The suspect approached the victim and snatched £200 from his pocket before running off.

Now police have issued a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident at 4pm on Saturday, June 9.

PC David Hedgecock said: “This was a cowardly attack on a vulnerable person who is, understandably, very upset and distressed by what occurred.

“If you recognise this man or witnessed the incident, please report this information to us.”

Witnesses or anyone with information should report in on the Sussex Police website or call 101 an quote serial 739 of 09/06.
