Reward In Search For Bournemouth Hit And Run Driver
A reward of up to £3,000 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of a man, suspected of a hit and run in Bournemouth.
At 4.30am on Sunday 24 August 2014 emergency services were called to Poole Hill following a report of two people being struck by a vehicle which had then driven off in the direction of Terrace Road toward the BIC.
A short time later, officers located the vehicle, a grey 318 BMW estate, which had been abandoned on the East Overcliff.
A 22-year-old woman and a 51-year-old man, both from Bournemouth, were taken to Poole Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The female victim sustained bruising to her body and the male victim a head wound.
Detective Sergeant Andy Bell, of Bournemouth CID, said:
“Following further enquiries, we are trying to locate the suspect, Dean Cambage who is 32 years old and from Bournemouth, and I am now able to release a picture of him.
“I am appealing for anyone who knows of the whereabouts of Dean Cambage to come forward – all calls will be treated with the strictest confidence.
“In the interest of personal safety, I urge members of the public who see anyone they believe to be the person pictured to call police and not to approach him.”
Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £3,000 for information passed through the Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 number that leads to the arrest of Dean Cambage.
A Regional Manager for Crimestoppers said:
“This is a traumatic incident that has taken place and I am just pleased that the injuries sustained were not more serious.
“I would ask anyone who has any information on this hit and run to contact Crimestoppers anonymously and tell us where Dean Cambage is. Nobody will know you contacted us and you would be doing the right thing by your community.”
DS Bell continued: “I hope that this cash reward will encourage anyone with information that will help us to apprehend the suspect to come forward.”
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Dean Cambage should either call Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 24:83 or, in order to qualify for the reward, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
