Bournemouth Echo: UPDATE: Man left with head and neck injuries after 'stabbing' in West Howe UPDATE: Man left with head and neck injuries after 'stabbing' in West Howe

A MAN was left bleeding from the head and neck after a suspected stabbing in Bournemouth in the early hours of this morning.

Police and ambulance were called just before 1am and discovered the 43-year-old victim at Frost Road council flats in West Howe.

He was taken by ambulance to Poole Hospital and one other person was arrested in relation to the incident.

Neighbours have said there is a problem with anti-social behaviour in the area and reacted with shock at seeing the whole area cordoned off and searched by police and forensic teams.

Detective Sergeant Richard Philp, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I believe the people involved in the incident are known to each other.

“I urge witnesses and anyone with information about the incident to contact Dorset Police urgently.”

South Western Ambulance service attended the incident at 12.56am and reported head and neck injuries.

A spokesperson said: “He was bleeding from the head and neck and was taken to Poole Hospital.”

Bournemouth council has sent round leaflets to all the residents in the Frost Road housing estate warning about anti-social behaviour in response to the incident.

One resident Becka Burden said: “I don’t feel safe in this area, it’s an absolute nightmare.

“Police have been here all night and they have been searching for something with torches. They told me they are looking for someone.”

Nick Slaughter: “We have had a lot of problems with anti-social behaviour in this area. The wing mirrors of all the cars in the street have been ripped off and my wife’s car has been smashed.”

Local resident Carol Masterman said: “The police cars woke me up early in the morning. We often hear shouting coming from the council estate. The whole area was cordoned off, it’s so sad to hear that someone was badly injured.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 18:08.

  • RESIDENTS have said vandalism, arson and aggressive anti-social behaviour is blighting the lives of families in West Howe.

After hearing reports of the suspected stabbing many neighbours have said they feel “unsafe” and remembered the incident in July last year when a man was stabbed to death in nearby Coleman Road.

Lenora Budgen said: “I do not feel safe living here and there is a lot of elderly people living round here.

“This assault is reminiscent of the murder last year where a man was stabbed in Coleman Road which is only a couple of roads away.

“My car has been smashed in and I’ve heard a big explosion where a group of youths set fire to the workman’s hut.”

Ward Councillor Ben Grower said: “We do occasionally get anti-social behaviour on and off, but that happens in any area with concentrated housing. I’m sure the police will deal with the incident adequately.”

There have been physical confrontations since the beginning of time and will still be happening long after you are gone despite what any councillor or figures show you, it shows you absolutely nothing about an area as you could be attacked out of nowhere just as easily in sandbanks as you could in kinson. These things are all about bumping into the wrong person at the Wang time.

You're TWICE as likely to be a victim of violent crime in a 'socially deprived' area.
That's beside the point though: It states the people involved might well be known to each other.

Also what does 'Wang' (penis) have to do with anything?

What is ' Penis time'?

To the victim, what is the difference between a suspected stabbing and a real one?

There has been anti-social behaviour in West Howe for generations. Go to work. Work hard and get yourself out of there like I did for the sake of my son and our future.

So let's just accept that being randomly stabbed in the neck by a complete stranger is part of our heritage and that acts of such violence should be expected and tolerated !. So much for civilisation. This defeatist attitude may be true in your world my friend, but it's certainly not in mine.
