Sussex Police have recently made public additional CCTV footage in connection with their investigation into a stabbing incident. The incident occurred on Bohemia Road around 7.50pm on May 15, resulting in injuries to a 50-year-old woman from the local area. After receiving medical treatment, she has since been discharged.
Previously, law enforcement authorities had released an image of an individual they believed could provide valuable assistance to their inquiries. Now, video footage of the same person has been shared with the public. Descriptions suggest that the person of interest is likely a male in his mid to late teens, observed wearing a dark puffa-style jacket, black tracksuit bottoms, and black trainers.
The newly released footage was captured near the tennis courts in the Falaise area, specifically at the St Margaret’s Road end, around 8.05pm. Detectives are urging members of the community who may recognize the individual to come forward. They are also continuing their appeal for witnesses who may have any relevant CCTV footage or information related to the incident.
Anyone with information or who recognizes the person in the image is encouraged to report it online or call 101, quoting serial number 1252 of May 15. Additionally, anonymous tips can be submitted to the independent charity Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111 or through their website at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
In other developments, a 35-year-old man without a fixed address, who was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, has been released on bail with strict conditions until August 19. Meanwhile, an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy who were initially taken into custody in connection with the incident have been released without charge and will not face further action.
