Police investigating the rape of a woman are calling for the public’s help in tracing a man with Brighton links.

36-year-old Joseph Warren is wanted for interview about the offence, which took place in Worthing, say police.

Warren is described by police as white, 5ft 9ins, stockily built, with brown eyes and short dark brown hair.

He has several tattoos on his chest and arms, as well as a swallow on the left side of his neck, and a rune on the right side of his neck.

He frequents the Worthing and Brighton areas and police are making intensive widespread enquiries across those areas to trace him.

Detective Chief Inspector Jo Banks said: “We believe that Joe Warren knows that he is wanted, and we urge him to hand himself in.

“If you have seen Warren or know where he may be, do not approach him yourself but let us know right away via 999 or 101, quoting Operation Limehouse.

“If you have any other information you can also report online here or call 101, again quoting Operation Limehouse.”

The offence happened at an address in the Broadwater area of Worthing on Sunday (April 23).
