Officers are appealing for a man to come forward after he was flagged down during a reported disturbance on Portland.

 Dorset Police was called at around 8.30pm on Saturday 21 November 2020 to reports of a disturbance in the area of St Georges Estate Road, in which a local man was allegedly being threatened by another man. No injuries were sustained.

“Finally, I would ask for anyone who was in the area and witnessed the incident to please contact me.”

A 52-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of affray, threats to kill and possession of a knife blade or sharp pointed article in a public place. He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
