A man's been robbed in the Springbourne area of Bournemouth.

The incident, in which a 34-year-old Bournemouth man was approached by two men and struck to the face before his jacket was stolen, happened along an alleyway between St Clements Road and Hamilton Close at around 10.10pm on Sunday, 20 March 2011.

“He was left in considerable pain and he may have sustained permanent damage to his vision.”


The robbers are both white and aged between 25 and 30.

One of the attackers is of a stocky build and was wearing a dark ski jacket and a light blue baseball cap.

The other offender is of a slim build and was wearing a white hooded top.

DC Wright continued:

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this robbery, and anyone with information about the men responsible, to contact me as soon as possible.

“All calls will be treated in the strictest of confidence.”
