Woman Sexually Assaulted In Bournemouth

Detectives in Bournemouth are investigating an indecent assault on a woman in Bournemouth town centre.

 It happened on Saturday 18th May 2013, sometime between 1.30am and 2am by the bus stop on Gervis Road.

The victim, an 18-year-old Christchurch woman, was heading towards Westover Road when she was approached by three unknown men who grabbed her and indecently touched her.

Police say she wasn't hurt but was left very frightened.

Detective Constable Siobhan Lovering, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said:

“This was an unprovoked attack on a young woman that has left her incredibly scared to go out on her own.

“This type of behaviour is not acceptable and we are urging anyone who may have witnessed this incident take place, or has information about those involved to contact police immediately and in confidence.

“One of the offenders is described as an Arabic looking man aged in his twenties, of skinny build with fluffy dark hair and stubble. He was wearing an orange T-shirt.”

No arrests have been made.

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