Girl's Leg Broken By Cyclist: CCTV Released

Police in Bournemouth are still looking for a man riding a mountain bike who's left a four-year-old girl with her leg broken in two places - and they've now released a CCTV picture.

At around 4.50pm on Saturday 19th November 2011 a cyclist collided with a four-year-old girl on the pavement along Southbourne Grove in Southbourne.

The girl was left with two fractures to her leg and was treated at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

It is believed that the cyclist initially stopped, but then rode on without providing his details.

Sergeant Sarah Jones, of Dorset Police’s traffic unit, said:

“Following further enquiries, I am now able to release a picture of a man that we wish to speak with. I am appealing for this man, and anyone who recognises this man, to contact me urgently.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision and, in particular, anyone who may have challenged the cyclist following the collision.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101.
