30th July 2018 |
Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery at a Park Cameras and have released a CCTV image of the three suspects.
At 10.30am on Sunday (22 July) three men entered the popular photography store in York Road on the Victoria Trading Estate in Burgess Hill and went to the front display. One of them, who was wearing gloves, opened the front display counters and picked up two cameras, valued together at £4,700.
The shop manager went to question them and grabbed hold of one of the cameras to try to prevent them from stealing it.
He was then punched on the head, causing him to let go and the trio then ran off with the two cameras, turning right on York Road, then right into Robin Road where they got into a silver Nissan Juke saloon car and drove off.
The shop manager was not physically injured.
An image from the store CCTV is attached showing the three suspects.
