Officers investigating an attempted assault in Bournemouth are issuing CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to.

 At around 3.30pm on Sunday 2 August 2020 two men entered Bowl Central on Westover Road wearing baseball caps. A member of staff asked them to remove their hats in line with their policy.

It is reported that the men became hostile and made threats to kill the staff member after they asked the men to leave. When they left the premises, one of the men attempted to assault the victim. 

 Police Community Support Investigator Chris Wilson, of Bournemouth police, said: “As part of my enquiries I have obtained CCTV images of two men I would like to speak to.

“I am appealing to anyone who recognises them to please get in touch.”
