Witness appeal after alleged assault in Bournemouth

Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a man was allegedly assaulted by another man in the Charminster area of the town – with one man being arrested.

The incident, in which a 20-year-old Bournemouth man sustained bruising to his face and broken teeth, happened along Malmesbury Park Road just after 1am on Sunday 16 December 2012.

He was treated at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

Detective Constable Richard Skinner, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I understand that the victim and another man were involved in some sort of altercation inside the Havana Wine Bar, along Charminster Road, at around 1am that morning.

“The two men were ejected from the premises following this incident, which took place on the basement dance floor.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the Havana bar on Sunday morning, and anyone who saw the later incident along Malmesbury Park Road, to contact me as soon as possible.

“I understand that there were a number of revellers inside the bar and in the vicinity, and it may be that someone, or several people, may be able to help me with this investigation.”

A 24-year-old Bournemouth man has been arrested and released on bail while enquiries continue.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting crime number 16:41. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
