POLICE were called to Boscombe this morning after a woman was apparently attacked.

An area of the churchyard at St Clement’s Church, St Clement’s Road, was cordoned off this morning, with police officers and forensics experts on the scene.

Dorset Police has not yet confirmed the nature of the incident, but has said it was called at 5.30am to reports of a disturbance in the area.

A resident of Hamilton Close, who did not want to be named, described hearing a young woman screaming outside her house.

“She was bleeding from the face and had obviously sustained a head injury,” she added. “I was trying to speak to her and she was screaming ‘please help me, please help me – I have been attacked’.

“The poor girl, her voice was so distraught.

“I went inside and called the police and within the space of about four minutes two police cars arrived and shortly after that an ambulance.

“While I was giving my statement to the police my neighbour was talking to the paramedics.”

Another nearby resident, who also did not want to be named, said he saw the woman running down Hamilton Close knocking on doors and screaming for help.

“She was just shouting again and again for help,” he added. “She seemed to be in a lot of distress.”

Ward councillor Jane Kelly said: "It is very concerning to hear about this. I hope the woman is not badly injured and I send her my best wishes. 

"I commend those who helped her and for calling the police so quickly."

South Western Ambulance Service confirmed that it was called at around 5.30am, but would not give any further details.

Worrying incident whatever happened because the church is in between two junior and primary schools. Hopefully it was just a "one off" incident and not something parents of children at those schools need worry about in September .....

I can remember during the 1960s and 70s when Boscombe was a vibrant high street and the Cresent and St Clements church area were quite affluent, but his is what happens when successive councils led by out of touch pen pushers and staffed by senile old duffers who are past their sell by date get involved in certain areas which they no nothing about, Bournemouth and Boscombe have been completely ruined by these idiots and there's no turning back the clock, its all here to stay.

Sadly the trouble is nowadays your here screaming and things going on day and night you tend to get used to it as a normal way of life, so when there maybe a genuine need of help it gets ignored. Today its difficult to decide what may appear to be a genuine need of help or a domestic row, drunk etc. Hope the lady concerned recovers from this ordeal but like others you have to question why someone was out and about at 5.30am ,it may be someone finishing or starting a work shift and everyone has and should have the right to walk the streets unharmed anytime of the day.!!

I live on the other side of the church yard and I've lived here 2 years this is the first attack that has happened in that grave yard.. Which actually has CCTV May I add. So people should probably stop judging. It's actually relatively quiet area considering it's boscombe and apparently like the Bronx and full of crime, murders and attacks!!
Funnily enough a very similar event happened to a close friend in westbourne less than a year ago but it never made the papers, just makes me think it's just the echo's bid to continue the hate campaign on Boscombe. I've lived here since being a child and as of yet I'm not a druggy or prostitute and I've never been attacked. I hope the girl recovers from her ordeal and they catch the a hole that done it

But what about the garage opposite and the murdered Chinese nurse? The bridge and Luke Campbell?
A pregnant woman even got stabbed on St Clements road about ten years ago.
This latest incident proves it has changed little.

The Nurse that was murdered was linked to southbourne and queens park aswell, those places weren't condemned though were they? And other events that happened like you said are 10 or so years ago lol.... Shall I begin listing the awful things that have happened in Bournemouth NOT in boscombe over the years? The poor Spanish man who got murdered at lansdown? The girl who got killed by her boyfriend? The Chinese lady and mother of 2 in charminster, to name the most high profile few. Unfortunately these terrible things aren't limited to just awful old scummy boscombe, although many would like to believe they are.

Let's simplify this and draw a bottom line here and then we, as a community, can unify…

The most of the BH postal code demographics is rife with a nasty vile undertone. Chav culture and low life drug addition is rampant.

Trust me on no account am I claiming boscombe is a 'nice' area to live, especially when everyone automatically assumes when you say 'I live in boscombe', that you're a degenerate, poverty stricken drug addict who needs to be avoided at all cost. When in fact you're actually just a normal family who lives in the area because you've been brought up there. I would like to move not because I feel unsafe or because my road is full of drug addicts and prostitutes. But because of the stigma and embarrassment attached to living here. Locking your doors to drive through boscombe also is a bit on the drastic side lol

What ridiculous hyperbole 'most' of the BH area is not 'nasty or vile' or 'rife with chavs and drugs' the vast majority of the quater million+ BH postcode residents are decent, there are far far worse parts of the country to live in.

The BH area has it's problems and issues just the same as anywhere else, it's not perfect here but nowhere is but even so there aren't many places in thd UK I'd choose to live over South Dorset.

But what about the garage opposite and the murdered Chinese nurse? The bridge and Luke Campbell?
A pregnant woman even got stabbed on St Clements road about ten years ago.
This latest incident proves it has changed little.

On the other hand maybe the pen pushers and the senile old duffers you mention (and there are a fair few!) are being led by their noses by the people earning a small fortune from Boscombe and all it's woes.

It's going to take new fresh and strong blood to sort out this area - that is for sure.

The Nurse that was murdered was linked to southbourne and queens park aswell, those places weren't condemned though were they?

Let's simplify this and draw a bottom line here and then we, as a community, can unify…

The most of the BH postal code demographics is rife with a nasty vile undertone. Chav culture and low life drug addition is rampant.
Is that BH1 to 24.

I lived in Boscombe, owned a home in Boscombe, spent my youth growing up in & around Boscombe.

It's offensive when people tar everyone with the same brush.

Up until I was 16 I lived in 'Sleepy Southbourne'. Do you know the amount of junkies,thieves & troublemakers lived/live in that area? Just not quite so in your face.

I also spent 3 years working in & around Hackney/Islington/Da
lston. Far worse than Boscombe. Twice someone tried to mug me in London. Not once did I have any problems in Boscombe, in the 15 years I actually lived there, that included areas from Crabton Close, Hawkwood Rd, Shelley Rd & finally my own house in Aylesbury Rd.

It get's boring seeing the ECHO posting these 'News reports' about Boscombe, knowing that it creates hits & thus money for them. It's the same with anything about travellers,dogs & cyclists. Seems that a lot of Bournemouth people who constantly post the same stereotypical comments, need a hobby?

Funnily enough a very similar event happened to a close friend in westbourne less than a year ago but it never made the papers, just makes me think it's just the echo's bid to continue the hate campaign on Boscombe. I've lived here since being a child and as of yet I'm not a druggy or prostitute and I've never been attacked. I hope the girl recovers from her ordeal and they catch the a hole that done it
Indeed.

Too many morons ready to attack Boscombe & the ECHO loves to ramp up anything that happens in Boscombe.

Some of the disgusting comments about Boscombe & it's residents in general are pathetic. Not everyone's on drugs or addicted just 'cause they live in Boscombe. All the same gross posters, with knee jerk reaction & same stereo typical comments.
and what planet are you on,or something obtained from boscum
I lived in Boscombe, owned a home in Boscombe, spent my youth growing up in & around Boscombe.

It's offensive when people tar everyone with the same brush.

Up until I was 16 I lived in 'Sleepy Southbourne'. Do you know the amount of junkies,thieves & troublemakers lived/live in that area? Just not quite so in your face.

I also spent 3 years working in & around Hackney/Islington/Da

lston. Far worse than Boscombe. Twice someone tried to mug me in London. Not once did I have any problems in Boscombe, in the 15 years I actually lived there, that included areas from Crabton Close, Hawkwood Rd, Shelley Rd & finally my own house in Aylesbury Rd.

It get's boring seeing the ECHO posting these 'News reports' about Boscombe, knowing that it creates hits & thus money for them. It's the same with anything about travellers,dogs & cyclists. Seems that a lot of Bournemouth people who constantly post the same stereotypical comments, need a hobby?
It is a cesspit full of scum. Accept that and move on.

Great job from all those who helped this young lady.
Pity it happend at all, ah well that's Boscombe for you,
Nothing will solve the crime in this area until a rebuild has taken place and the druggies and the peddles of drugs ar removed, by whatever means are required.

Nasty incident, hope all involved are ok and the perpetrator is swiftly apprehended. Shameful to think that on the anniversary of WW1, where millions surrendered their lives to protect our freedoms and our society, that we should be tolerating petty crimes such as this. Makes the sacrifice seem even more needless.

Pot & Kettle...

Pete Woodley,security hero & pillar of the community.

Being old doesn't mean you're always right.CIF & What's nasty about my comment? Oh. In the past I've insulted you. I'd have thought a 'man' of your' calibre wouldn't get so upset? I'm not the one who's bitter with my lot 'Mr Woodley'. ''Bitter is like cancer, it eats upon the host. But anger is like fire, it burns it all clean''

Also I don't apply the simplistic 'It's full of scum, flatten it' attitude as many do. There are decent people living in Boscombe, although you'd think not the way 'sheeple' go on.
