Police are looking for information after a group of men tried to steal the doors of a Land Rover in Bosham.
The incident took place last night (Wednesday 17) and the men were said to have threatened the owner of the car.
The men were using a silver Vauxhaull Astra van and police are looking to speak to anyone who sees the same vehicle in 'suspicious circumstances'.
A tweet from Chichester Police said: "Did you seen a silver Astra van in the #Bosham area on Wednesday evening 17/07/19. Males tried to steal doors to a Land Rover Defender and threatened the owner.
"If you see a similar vehicle in Bosham in suspicious circumstances please take the index and let us know #ATeamChi."
Earlier this year, a warning was issued to owners of Land Rover Defenders following a spate of thefts across the area with a total of nine between April and May.
