Men Attacked With Golf Clubs At Party

Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after an assault and criminal damage in Winton.

It happened at about 1.30am on Saturday, 16 October 2010, when two men approached a group outside a house in Sedgley Road, where a private party took place.

Detective Constable James Lees, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said:

“I understand that there was a verbal disagreement before the men repeatedly attacked the two victims with golf clubs.

“One of the offenders incorrectly believed that one of the victims knew his sister – this doesn’t appear to be true and this could be a case of mistaken identity.

“One victim suffered jaw injuries and the other sustained a broken arm.

“The offenders also damaged a vehicle parked nearby and shattered a number of windows at the address. It is believed that the men left in a silver coloured VW Polo.”

One of the men is described as 19 to 21 years old, five feet eight inches tall, of a medium build, with shaved dark brown hair, dark eyes and thick eyebrows. He wore a black hooded top.

The second man is also described as 19 to 21 years old and slightly shorter than the other man. He wore a grey hooded top.

DC Lees continued:

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to contact me as soon as possible.

“Any information may help me to find out exactly what happened.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call 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.
