A 21-year-old woman was walking along West Overcliff Drive near the bridge across the Chine when she was approached by a man.

The offender then pushed her from behind. When she turned around, the man grabbed her shoulder and pulled at the chest area of her jumper.

The man is described as white, about six feet five inches tall, of slim build and aged in his 20s. He has very short dark hair and was wearing dark clothing.

Detective Constable Ben Morgan, of Bournemouth CID, said: “The victim managed to run away from the offender but this was still frightening for her.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or saw the described man in the area to please come forward.”

Patrols have been stepped up in the area to reassure the public.
