A POOLE man who suffered facial injuries "may have been hit with a bottle", police say.

The 23-year-old was in Yates Wine Bar in Dean Park Crescent, Bournemouth, at around 1.30am on Wednesday, June 4, when the attack took place.

He was left with a laceration to his head and suspected fractured eye socket, and taken to hospital for treatment.

Detective Constable Katie Savill, of Bournemouth CID, said: “It is not clear how the victim sustained his injuries but it is believed that he may have been hit with a bottle.

“I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident in the bar to establish what exactly happened."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 04:20. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.

And in other news, something supposedly happened to someone, so the police would like who'd supposedly done it to supposedly come forward and supposedly confess rather than, supposedly, police the streets as they're supposedly supposed to do
