Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


Officers investigating the attempted theft of items from a shop and subsequent assault of two staff members in Bournemouth are issuing a CCTV image of the suspect.

At around 11.05am on Thursday 24 March 2022 a staff member saw a woman attempt to leave Tesco Express in Christchurch Road with items that she had made no attempts to pay for.

The woman was approached by a staff member and it is reported that she headbutted them. It was also reported that the woman swung her bag at the victim and the metal chain caused injury. The staff member sustained bruising and swelling to their face.

It is also alleged that the woman punched a second staff member, before throwing the items on the floor and leaving the area.

Police Constable Rob Chandler, of Bournemouth police, said: “I have been carrying out a number of enquiries so far into this incident to try and identify the person responsible.

“I am now issuing a CCTV image of the suspect and would ask anyone with information about her identity to please get in touch.”
