Investigation Into Attack Outside Club

Police investigating an assault outside a nightclub in Bournemouth have released a picture of a man they're looking for.

The attack happened sometime between 1.40am and 1.55am on Sunday 11th November 2012 at the rear of V Bar, St. Andrews Church on Exeter Road.

The victim, a 26-year-old man from Berkshire, was punched in the face and was left with a cut and swelling to his right eye.

Police Constable Jonathan Oaten, of Bournemouth police, said:

“This was a callous attack which has left a man with a nasty injury, and following further enquiries, I am now able to release a CCTV image.

“This assault happened outside a busy nightclub, so I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious.

“In particular I would like to speak to the man in the picture who I believe can help us with our investigation.

“I urge anyone who has any information to call Dorset Police urgently on 101 in strict confidence.”

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