Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a serious assault in Bournemouth town centre.

 At 12.57am on Friday 2 October 2020 officers were called to reports that someone had been hit in the face with an object on Holdenhurst Road near to Halfords.

 A 19-year-old local man has been arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and is assisting officers with enquiries. An investigation is underway to locate a second man.

 Detective Constable Luke Davis, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I am aware that there were a number of taxi drivers, buses and pedestrians who were in the area at the time and I am appealing to anyone who either witnessed what happened or has any information to please come forward. 

“I am particularly keen to hear from any motorists who were travelling along Holdenhurst Road between 12.50am and 1am to please check their dashcams for any relevant footage.”
