Man Suffers Fractured Jaw In Golf Club Attack

Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with any information to come forward after a man was seriously assaulted during an attempted robbery in the Charminster area of Bournemouth.

The incident, in which a man was attacked by three men wielding golf clubs, happened at the junction of Stewart Road and Henville Road at around 2am on Sunday, 30 January 2011.

The victim, from the Czech Republic, sustained a fractured jaw and lacerations to the head.

Detective Constable James Lees, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said:

“The 28-year-old victim was approached by three men who demanded that he hand over his wallet. When he refused, the attackers struck him to the head with golf clubs and searched his pockets.”

Nothing was stolen.

The three attackers are white, aged in their early twenties and were all wearing hooded tops.

DC Lees continued:

“After the assault the victim was treated at Poole hospital and later released. He has since been re-admitted to hospital for further treatment.

“This was a violent and cowardly attack on a lone man and I am determined to find those responsible..

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident, and anyone with any information about those responsible, to contact me urgently.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 01202 22 22 22 quoting incident number 30:55. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
