Weymouth Man Unconscious For 10 Hours
Detectives in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a man was assaulted in the town.
The incident happened at 4.30am on Monday 25 November 2013 on the Rodwell Trail near to the bridge on Buxton Road.
The victim, a 38-year-old local man, remembers heading in the direction of Portland, when he was approached by an unknown man who demanded his mobile phone.
His next memory is waking up in undergrowth on the Rodwell Trail, calling for help and being assisted by a passing dog walker at around 2pm later that day.
His iPhone and cash were missing and he had sustained a minor head injury, which led him to report the incident to police.
Detective Constable Tony O’Connell, of Weymouth CID, said:
“I am appealing for witnesses and anyone with information about this incident to contact Dorset Police in confidence as soon as possible.
“It is believed the victim has been knocked unconscious for a number of hours before being found by a member of the public.
“He would have been highly visible in day light on this well used route and I am keen to hear from anyone who walked that stretch of the Rodwell Trail on Monday 25 November before the victim was found at 2pm.
“I am also very keen to hear from anyone who may have seen an incident take place, or may have details of how the victim sustained a head injury and had personal items stolen.
“He has no recollection of the incident, and is unable to provide any description of a possible offender.
“All calls will be treated in confidence.”
No arrests have been made.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 25:235. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
Hampshire Police have dealt with more than 100 cases in a year of people being blackmailed over intimate webcam images.
