Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert



Detectives continuing to investigate a sexual assault on a woman in Bournemouth are issuing further images of a man they would like to speak to as part of their investigation.

At around 2.25am on Wednesday 7 July 2021 the victim – a young woman – was approached by a man as she walked along Charminster Road.

The man then walked with the victim along Heron Court Road and made several attempts to kiss her. The victim was subsequently sexually assaulted by the man at an address in Markham Road.

The offender was reportedly carrying a rucksack that had a speaker within it and was playing music. It is believed he may be eastern European.

Detective Inspector Simon Huxter, of Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “Our investigation into this incident is ongoing and we are continuing to do all we can to support the victim.

“We have now obtained further images of a man we are keen to identify as part of our enquiries and I would again urge anyone with information as to his identity to please contact us. The images show him wearing a fairly distinctive backpack and what appears to be an AFC Bournemouth football top.

“Local officers have been carrying out increased patrols in the area and can be approached by members of the public with any information or concerns.”
