Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward following a robbery in Bournemouth.

At around 10.45pm on Wednesday 30 June 2021 the victim – a man aged in his 20s – was walking on Queens Road when a man began to follow him.

It is reported that as the victim turned onto Marlborough Road, the man pulled the hood on the victim’s jumper over his head and punched him to side of his head, which caused him to fall to the floor. The man then grabbed at his clothing and took his mobile phone from his pocket.

The man was described as wearing a black face mask, a black hooded top and white trainers.

The victim was taken to hospital by the ambulance service for treatment to a fractured eye socket, as well as scratches to his neck, eye and abdomen.

Detective Constable Jo Regan, of the Priority Crime Team, said: “An investigation is underway to try and identify the offender.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed what happened or saw any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the incident to please come forward.

“Finally, I would ask motorists and residents to check their dashcams and home CCTV systems for any relevant footage to assist my enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210104500. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call freephone 0800 555 111.
