28 April 2016
Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward following an alleged assault in Bridport – with one man arrested.

Just after midnight on Saturday 23 April 2016 Dorset Police was called to reports of an assault outside the Greyhound public house on East Street.

A 19-year-old local man had sustained a puncture wound to his back and a cut to his left hand. He was taken to hospital for treatment. His condition is not life-threatening.

Detective Constable Declan Cummings, of Weymouth CID, said: “We know that there were a number of people in the area at the time and I am appealing to anyone who saw or heard anything outside the Greyhound pub and has not yet spoken to police, to please call me on 101.” 

A 28-year-old man of Bridport was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries until the beginning of June 2016.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 23:05. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
