AN E-FIT image has been released of a man wanted for a burglary at a flat.

Police were called to the property in Church Road in Hove in December.

But when the man was challenged by the home owner, he ran out of the premises.

Now officers have appealed for the public’s help to identify him by releasing the computer generated image.

He is described as 6ft 2ins, with short dark hair, and possibly dark blue eyes.

The intruder wore a black puffer-style jacket and black trousers.

The break-in took place at 2.20pm on December 11 in Church Road.

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote reference 7011 of 11/12.
