Officers say an 18-year-old woman was assaulted early on Tuesday morning (21 July) after being followed into the Lower Gardens.

Bournemouth Central Neighbourhood Inspector Heather Dixey said:
"Officers are keen to talk to anyone with information and any witnesses to either incident in the Lower Pleasure Gardens near to Bournemouth Square and the balloon area - at around 3.25am on Monday 13 July and between 1.50am and 2.05am on Tuesday 21 July 2015.
"I would like to remind residents and visitors - as we do throughout the year - to be conscious of their own personal safety.
"It is essential that everyone takes a common sense approach and trusts their instincts - if you don't feel comfortable in a particular area, then take another route.
"All year round and all over the country, there are many things that people can do to ensure that they are safe, such as walking with friends, carrying a mobile phone and letting people know where you are."
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 21:25. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
