Teen's Jaw Broken In Weymouth

Police are investigating an attack on a teenager in Weymouth.

The 19-year-old man was left with a broken jaw after being hit across the face with a belt and beaten up on Newstead Road, between the cemetery and the Abbotsbury Road junction.

It happened some time between 2am and 3am on Saturday 22 September 2012.

The victim, from Weymouth, was treated at Poole Hospital.

Police Constable Charlie Forsey, of Weymouth police, said:

“The offender approached the victim and hit him with a belt.

"This caused the victim to fall to the ground where he was then kicked by several people.

”I understand that prior to the assault, the victim and his friends had been involved in a verbal altercation with another group of young people.”

“I understand that a local resident left his house and broke up the assault.

“This man has yet to be identified and I am appealing for him to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible as he may be able to help with my investigation.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed this nasty assault to call us – in confidence – at the earliest opportunity.”

The main offender is white and aged in his late teens. He is of a slim build and was wearing a grey tracksuit at the time of the attack.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101.
