E-fit Released After Unprovoked Attack
Police investigating an attack in Tower Park have released an e-fit of a man they want to speak to.
A 22-year-old man from Poole was assaulted by two men along a gravel path near to Sherborne Crescent on Friday 3 May.
He suffered minor injuries to his face and hand.
Detective Constable Mandy Brimicombe, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said:
“I would urge anyone who recognises this man to contact Dorset Police, in confidence, at the earliest opportunity.”
The man in the e-fit is described as being aged in his thirties and dark skinned. He has a thin strip of beard that followed his jaw line from ear to ear and he was wearing a dark green hooded top and dark coloured trousers, possibly made of nylon.
The second man is also aged in his thirties and dark skinned. He was wearing a dark jumper and had a plaster cast half way up his right arm.
DC Brimicombe added: “There would have been people in this area at the time of this attack and I urge any witnesses to come forward.
“I am also still keen to speak with a man who was seen talking on his phone nearby at the time of the incident. He may have information that can help me with this investigation.”
No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information is asked to call Dorset Police on the 101 number.
640 men were killed when the South African troop carrier was hit by a cargo ship in 1917.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
