Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating a robbery in Bournemouth are issuing a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to.

 At around 12.45am on Monday 25 May 2020 the victim, a man aged in his 40s, was walking along Old Christchurch Road in the area of Richmond Gardens when he was approached from behind by a group of people who became verbally abusive toward him. 

 Some of the members of the group proceeded to hit the victim. He then fell to the ground and was kicked.

 A black bag belonging to the victim was stolen, which contained keys and a bank card.

 The victim was helped by two members of the public before attending hospital. He sustained a fractured shoulder as a result of the incident.

 Detective Constable Holly Sexton, of Bournemouth CID, said: “This was an unprovoked attack, which left the victim with a nasty injury and I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident.

“As part of my enquiries I am releasing a CCTV image of someone I would like to speak to. Anyone with information as to his identity is asked to contact Dorset Police.
