POLICE are appealing for information on the whereabouts of a man charged with numerous counts of assault.

Che Isaacs-Neville was found guilty on two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, two counts of assault by beating, criminal damage and theft of a motor vehicle at Hove Crown Court on Wednesday, July 28.

The six offences took place in Hastings and Bexhill between December 2019 and March 2020.

The court heard how the 22-year-old assaulted two women at an address in Hastings in December 2019 and again in February 2020. Both women suffered injuries during both assaults.

On the second occasion, he also smashed the windscreen of a car belonging to one of the victims.

In March last year, a car belonging to one of the women was also found to have been taken from Bexhill without her permission.

The Crown Prosecution Service authorised six charges and the trial took place in his absence. As a result, police are now renewing their appeal for information on his whereabouts.

According to Sussex Police, he has an address in the Forest Hill area of London but is also believed to still frequent Hastings and Bexhill.

Investigating officer DC Ollie Bali said he is aware he is wanted by police and is “actively evading arrest”.

“Despite this, it was important for us to continue with the court process and I am pleased we have still managed to secure a conviction in his absence,” he said.

“We would urge anyone who sees him or who knows where he is to please contact us.”

Sentencing has been scheduled for August 31.

Anyone with any information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact police online or by calling 101 quoting serial 47200035370.
