Manhunt continues for St Leonards man Romany Burns

Police are still hunting for a St Leonards man wanted in connection with a violent incident at a flat in Hastings earlier this year.

Officers want to trace and interview Romany Vincent Burns on suspicion of assault and criminal damage following a violent incident at a flat in Hastings in January in which a woman aged 19, and known to him, was reported to have been assaulted and damage caused to the front door and to property inside.

Burns, 26, is described as white, six feet tall and medium build, with light brown hair. He was last known to have been living at an address in Stonehouse Drive, St Leonards.

Police Investigator Emily Robinson from the East Sussex Safeguarding Investigations Unit said: “It is important that we find Burns as soon as possible and interview him under caution. He is a local man who frequents the Hastings and St Leonards areas although it is also possible that he may have moved elsewhere in an effort evade us.

“If you see Burns or know where he is, do not approach him, just contact us on 999 or 101, quoting serial 1488 of 21/01. You can also contact us online.

“You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
