Alleged sexual assault in Bournemouth - Appeal

Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a woman was reportedly subjected to a sexual assault in the Charminster area of the town - with one man being charged.

The alleged incident happened in a vehicle at around 3.20am on Sunday 27 January 2013.

The victim is a 26-year-old woman from Bournemouth.

Detective Constable Ross Graham, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I am appealing for witnesses to assist with this investigation.

“We are very keen to speak with anyone who may have seen a red Nissan Micra car in the areas of Winton recreation ground on Fitzharris Avenue or behind the job centre on Cotlands Road in Lansdowne.

“Witnesses and anyone with information are asked to contact police as soon as possible in the strictest confidence.”

A 47-year-old man of no fixed abode has been arrested and charged with sexual assault, and is due to appear before Bournemouth Crown Court next month.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 27:226. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
