Do you recognise men wanted over assault in Bournemouth town centre?

Bournemouth Echo: Do you recognise men wanted over assault in Bournemouth town centre? Do you recognise men wanted over assault in Bournemouth town centre?

DETECTIVES have released CCTV footage after a man suffered a fractured skull and bleed on his brain following a vicious early morning attack in Bournemouth town centre.

The 20-year-old victim was approached by a man outside Barclays in Old Christchurch Road and punched to the side of his face at around 3.30am on Sunday December 30.

DC Matthew Manners of Bournemouth CID said: “Following enquiries I am able to release two images of three men that I would like to speak with in relation to this assault.

“I would urge them and anyone who recognises them to contact me, in confidence, urgently.

Around 30 minutes prior to this incident a 21-year-old Dorchester man was allegedly assaulted in the same street. He sustained severe bruising and cuts to his head and face.”

A 23-year-old man of no fixed abode has been arrested and released on bail in relation to the first incident.

Anyone with information should phone 101, quoting incident number 30:62 or 30:74, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The town square is not a nice place these days. Perhaps now that teenagers are becoming increasingly uncivilised and leaving school without discipline or basic education our government should consider raising the drinking age to 21. A few bars would have to close but that's a good thing. Make town centers about adults again forcing businesses to focus their entertainment, music and themes around adults again like in other countries and remind teenagers that they are still children. You go into a bar on a sat night and everything is plastic and they have rap music blasting out. Hardly a welcoming environment.

Well said! I remember when i was younger it was about going out, getting drunk and chatting up the ladies, now it seems to be, get drunk at home, go out at 11pm and drink some cheap drinks somewhere, then for more people than it used to be, pick on someone and kick the c**p out of them!

Councillors are you reading this..another assault just a week after the last. Could you provide the echo with the cost to the NHS your night time economy costs the taxpayer and reveal lives lost in the town centre over the past 5 years..my mate was one of them.

The guy arrested was stated as 23 years of age... Is it still all about the 18 & 19 years olds bringing down the town?

Sounds llike they need to ban over 21s for drinking...

The article mentions a 20 yr old, 21yr old and a 23 yr old. The fact is town centers would be a lot friendlier if the pubs and bars were over 21. The under 21's just cant handle their own emotions after a few drinks and think they have something to prove to the world. Sure this happens with over 21s too. If town centers were focused on adults people who actually have spare money to spend might start going to town again rather than teenagers who get drunk before going out.

I am not sure that it was solely the Local Councils idea to allow all of the late licencing. If good Tony Blair hadn't allowed 24 hour drinking and sold it to the nation as a good money earner, none of this would have happened. Those three would have been at home rather than roaming the streets at 3am.
I wish someone in Parliament had given more thought to the resulting costs of additional Policing, Hospital tretment, cleaning streets, vandalism etc. before deciding to allow Bars and Pubs to get rich from this.

It's comforting to our criminal element that cctv quality is so por in Bournemouth! I was knocked off my motorbike in Bournemouth and the incident was on 5 different cameras but none of them (including town cameras) could make out enough detail to read the cars license plate....... A lot of pubs have brand new digital recording systems installed but keep the old cameras from 1985 to save money!

I suggest that if anyone thinks they can recognise the individuals in that picture then they really need to book an urgent appointment at the opticians- the police would have been better off asking the local junior school to do some paintings of what the culprits might look like - i'm sure they wouldn't be any less identifiable.

this has to be quite possibly the worst CCTV images i have ever seen,
maybe it's time to stop people drinking in town and ban under 21's from being able to purchase alcohol but fundementally it is down to discipline at home when people are younger! also the amount of imigrants from Europe allowed to freely come into the country as the majority are rude (there are some very pleasant ones as well)
it's time the police and government banned people like B&Q from selling cctv kit as the quality is sub-standard and fitted being idiots and this looks like something from A-data, cheap rubbish, that way the culprits would be easily identifiable!! this almost seems a pointless excersise asking for people to name them as it could be anybody from your best mate to next door neighbour, work colleague or postman!!! could even be three woman!!!!!
