Police are searching for three men who tried to break into a Bognor Regis shop in daylight.
Just before 9.30am on Tuesday, December 2, a member of staff arriving for work at the Bognor Cheque Exchange in the High Street heard noises at the back of the building and found a man climbing in through a window.
The staff member thrust a broom at him. The man ran off, accompanied by two others who were outside.
All three wore black clothing and balaclavas. Police believe they drove off in a black ‘14’ registered car with blacked-out wndows.
DC Graham Slack said: “This was a very unusual incident for that time of day. “
He asked anyone who saw the men to email email@example.com, or call 101.
