Police in Crawley say thay are searching for Michael Tewolde who they want to interview about an attack on a woman.

A police statement says that on Monday 26 March the 20-year-old woman was attacked at the address where she was living in Crawley.

She was punched in the face and kicked in the back and stomach while on the floor.

Police also want to talk to Tewolde about threats to kill the woman, and criminal damage - to an intercom system at the address - arising from the same incident.
