Can You Help Dorset Police Find Purple Faced Criminal?


2:10pm 8th October 2012
(Updated 8:12am 9th October 2012)

A man with a distinctive mark on his face is being tracked by Police in Weymouth.

It's after he broke into a property along Hope Street last Wednesday (3rd October 2012) around 2pm.

Luckily he was disturbed and fled the scene empty handed.

Detectives say the offender has a large purple sore on his left cheek. He's also described as white, aged 40 to 50 years old, approximately 5.8 tall and of medium build. He has dark hair and speaks with a slight accent.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 3:218. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
