Appeal after assault in Weymouth

Alert message sent 05/07/2021 16:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating an assault in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

The incident happened at around 10.45pm on Tuesday 22 June 2021 on The Esplanade near to the King’s Statue when the victim was approached by four people and then assaulted by two men from this group.

The group consisted of two young men and two young women, possibly in their late teens. The two offenders have been described as wearing black tracksuits.

The victim, a 38-year-old local man, sustained injuries to his head and was taken to hospital for treatment.

It was reported that after the assault the group walked toward the Premier store.

Police Constable Ryan Lloyd, of Weymouth police, said: “This was an unprovoked attack that left the victim very shaken and confused as he did not know the offenders.

“Since the incident we have made a number of enquiries trying to identify those responsible. I am hoping that there are more witnesses out there who have not yet spoken with police and I would urge them to please come forward.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have information about the offenders that could help our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210099817. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call freephone 0800 555 111.
