DETECTIVES have published photographs of three men they want to interview in connection with the robbery of a Worthing flat.
Just after 7pm on Sunday, November 6, a couple were having dinner with three children in a first floor flat in Phoenix House, Chapel Road, Worthing, when there was a knock at the door.
The 30-year old male occupant opened the door and two men rushed in, threatened him and his 27-year old female partner, and stole £700 cash, two mobile phones, an iPad, and aftershave.
No weapons were used, although one of them produced what appeared to be a claw hammer during the incident, and the couple were badly shaken but unhurt.
The men are both described as black, and in their twenties.
One, the man with the hammer, was about 5ft 5in- 5ft 6in, of slim to medium build, with a small pitted scar on his left cheek.
He was wearing a dark blue or black hooded top, which was up, and had a small badge with yellow colouring on it in the middle.
The second man was about 5ft 10in to 5ft 11in, of medium build, with a short black goatee beard.
He was wearing a dark blue hooded top, which was also up.
The third man, also described as black and in his twenties, was waiting by the flat front door during the robbery. He was 5ft 6in, of slim to medium build, wearing an Adidas dark green hooded top pulled up so that his face could not be seen.
