E-fit Released After Sex Attacks

Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after two sexual assaults in the town centre – with an e-fit of the offender being released.

The incident, in which a man sexually assaulted two seventeen year-old Bournemouth girls, happened at St Michael’s Churchyard, on Poole Hill, at around 11.40pm on Friday, 29 October 2010.

The victims, who were together at the time, were not injured.

Detective Constable Ken Todd, of Bournemouth CID, said:

“Following further enquiries, I am now able to release an e-fit of the offender.

“I would urge anyone who recognises this man to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible.”

The offender is described as dark-skinned, aged in his twenties, around five feet five inches tall, of a slim build and with spiky hair.

He was wearing dark coloured jeans, with writing on the back, a black top with white writing, a black leather jacket and a brown belt.

DC Todd continued:

“I understand that there were a number of people in this area at the time of this incident and it may be that someone, perhaps several people, will have seen or heard something that will help me with my investigation.

“There is nothing to suggest that this extremely distressing incident is linked to any other reported sexual assaults in the Bournemouth and Poole areas, but anyone with any information should contact me – in confidence – at the earliest possible opportunity.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should contact Dorset Police in confidence on 01202 222 222 or the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
