Alleged road rage incident in Poole - Witness appeal

Officers in Poole are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward following an alleged road rage incident near the town centre – with one man being arrested.

The incident, in which the bodywork of a silver Rover was damaged, happened on Level A of the Dolphin Centre multi-storey car park on Kingland Road at around 10.30am on Saturday 15 December 2012.

It’s understood that a 31-year-old Swanage man driving the silver Rover and a 36-year-old Bournemouth man driving a blue Vauxhall Zafira had been involved in a verbal altercation along Holes Bay Road, near to Poole train station, at around 10.20am that same morning.

Both cars then continued over the nearby flyover and across the George Roundabout on the way to the car park.

Police Constable Phil Prentice, of Poole police, said: “It’s important that I find out exactly what happened and I’d urge anyone who has any information about the motorists involved in this incident to contact me as soon as possible.

“This area will have been very busy with shoppers on a Saturday morning, especially in the lead up to Christmas, and it may be that someone is able to help me with my investigation.”

A 36-year-old Bournemouth man was arrested and has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting crime number 15:191. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
