Bournemouth Echo: Man suffers broken eye socket and bite wounds in pub attack Man suffers broken eye socket and bite wounds in pub attack

A MAN suffered bite wounds and a broken eye socket during an unprovoked late-night assault in a Dorset pub.

The 21-year-old victim was attacked when he entered the Rising Sun on East Street, Wimborne.

The incident happened on Tuesday May 17 but police have just issued a picture of a man they want to question.

They said the victim, from Sturminster Newton, suffered a broken eye socket and had a finger, his face and nose bitten in the attack.

The attacker is described as a white man, about 6ft tall, of medium build, bald and aged 30-35. He was wearing a white or grey T-shirt.

PC Jo Regan, of Bournemouth CID, said: “This assault caused a serious injury and left the victim in considerable pain.

“Following further enquiries, I am now able to release a CCTV image of a man who may be able to help with the investigation.”

Anyone who recognises the man in the picture should ring Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident 17:09, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Hares don't have their HAIR CUT, they get SKINNED, you could be right about him being a Military man, if he can be called a Man , looks more like a THUG to me!.

to the above comments stating the photo does not depict the attacker perhaps this was just someone seen hanging around with the attacker and genuinely they just want to talk to him

Indeed. Plenty of his ilk to be found in pubs & clubs all around UK, especially at the week end!
