It was reported that at around 3.25pm on Wednesday 18 August 2021 a security officer was racially abused after attending reports of a man being abusive to customers at the Delfino Lounge in the Dolphin Centre in Falkland Square.

The man then left the scene on a bicycle.

Following enquiries, a 26-year-old Bournemouth man has attended for a voluntary police interview and has been released under investigation.
