The independent charity Crimestoppers has launched an appeal for anonymous information to urgently find 23-year-old Jordan Charles, wanted for questioning over a series of violent incidents in Sussex.
A string of offences in recent months includes violence and robbery; threatening revellers with a knife in Brighton, using racist and homophobic language, spitting saliva and blood at police, ransacking a takeaway in Crawley and attacking a customer, attacking staff at another Crawley restaurant with a glass and a metal chain dog lead wrapped around his hand, punching and kicking a woman to the floor outside a nightclub and assaulting a 12-year-old girl who had come to the aid of her mother and aunt during a parking dispute. He has also failed to appear in court.
Jordan Charles is black, about 5’ 9″, of medium build and with black hair. He is known to have links to Crawley and is thought to still frequent the area.
He is also thought to have links to Bexhill and Croydon in south London.
To support the police with their investigation, Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £5,000 for information the charity exclusively receives – either online or by calling freephone 0800 555 111 – that leads to the arrest of Jordan Charles.
Glenys Balchin, Regional Manager for Sussex and Surrey at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “This man must be found before anyone else comes to harm, which is why we are making an urgent appeal to the public in Sussex, Surrey and south London to help find his location. Jordan Charles is dangerous and the allegations against him are serious.
“It is important to remind people that assisting somebody wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution. We are appealing to anybody who may know the whereabouts of Jordan Charles to urgently tell our charity what you know 100% anonymously. Always. You can call our UK Contact Centre, which is open 24/7, on freephone number 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form
“Crimestoppers has been taking crime information since our charity was formed over 32 years ago. Every day over a thousand people trust our charity with their anonymous information. Nobody will know you contacted us, only you.”
Information passed directly to the police will not qualify for our reward. Only information passed to Crimestoppers using our untraceable anonymous online form or via our 0800 555 111 freephone number will qualify.
