Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward following a reported robbery in Bournemouth – with four people arrested.

At approximately 12.30am on Wednesday 16 June 2021 a Bournemouth man was riding an electric unicycle at the Pier Approach near to the crazy golf when he was approached by a group of teenage boys.

The group reportedly asked to ride the unicycle, but the victim refused and he was subsequently assaulted.

When the victim woke up on the ground, he discovered his unicycle, mobile phone and wallet had been allegedly stolen.

The electric unicycle is described as a New InMotion with 1500Wh battery, 2200 Motor and pedal suspension.

Two boys from Bournemouth, aged 16 and 17, and two boys from Christchurch, aged 15 and 17, were arrested on suspicion of robbery and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant Karen Penn, of the Priority Crime Team, said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and witnessed what happened to please get in touch.

“I am also particularly keen to hear from anyone who has seen an electric unicycle for sale locally matching the description given.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210095715. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call freephone 0800 555 111.
