Detectives investigating a sexual assault on a teenage girl in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have relevant CCTV or dashcam footage to come forward.

At around 9.30pm on Saturday 16 October 2021 a 13-year-old girl was waiting for a taxi at the Winton Recreation Ground by Heron Court Road when a man pulled up in a green car. He got out and grabbed her before touching her inappropriately over her clothing.

The offender is described as white, aged in his 20s with blue eyes and blond hair. He had no facial hair and was wearing a number of necklaces and earrings. He was also wearing a black jumper, beige trousers and a blue cap.

The car is described as a green Jeep-style vehicle with clear windows and beige-coloured seats.

Detective Constable Ken Todd, of the Child Abuse Investigation Team, said: “This was a very distressing incident for the young victim and officers are continuing to support her.

“We take offences of this nature extremely seriously and have been carrying out a number of enquiries to identify the man responsible.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area to please contact us. I would also urge any residents with home CCTV systems or motorists who were in the vicinity to please check their footage around the relevant time for anything that might assist our investigation.”

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 55210167267. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call freephone 0800 555 111.
