Detectives in Poole are renewing their appeal for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a man was assaulted near Tower Park – with officers releasing an e-fit of one of the men responsible.
A 22-year-old Poole man was assaulted by two men along a gravel path near to Sherborne Crescent at 5pm on Friday 3 May 2013. The path leads to the nearby Tesco supermarket.
The victim sustained minor injuries to his face and hand.
Detective Constable Mandy Brimicombe, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said: “I am now in a position to release an e-fit of one of the men responsible for this entirely unprovoked attack.
“I would urge anyone who recognises this man to contact Dorset Police, in confidence, at the earliest opportunity.”
The man in the e-fit was described as being in his thirties and dark skinned. He had a thin strip of beard that followed his jaw line from ear to ear and was wearing a dark green hooded top and dark coloured trousers, possibly made of nylon.
The second man was also in his thirties and dark skinned. He was wearing a dark jumper and had a plaster cast half way up his right arm.
DC Brimicombe continued: “There would have been people in this area at the time of this attack and I urge any witnesses to come forward.
“I am also still keen to speak with a man who was seen talking on his phone nearby at the time of the incident. He may have information that can help me with this investigation.”
No arrests have been made.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 3:361. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
