UK police issue warning about a man who preys on members of the LGBT community

British detectives believe Nigel Rowel (pictured) is in hiding and could be preying on members of the LGBT communities in Sussex, England.

BBC reports:
Sussex Police said Nigel Rowell, also known as Nick or Nicholas, might have been targeting people for theft through dating websites and newspapers adverts. Rowell, 44, failed to return to HMP Blantyre House in Goudhurst after being granted weekend release in June. He was serving a five-year sentence for burglary, theft and deception. Sussex Police think Rodwell could have been in Worthing, Eastbourne, Hove, Brighton and Horsham in recent weeks.
