Bournemouth Echo: Man attacked with a hammer by two masked men in Corfe Mullen Man attacked with a hammer by two masked men in Corfe Mullen

POLICE are appealing for information after a man was attacked with a hammer in Corfe Mullen.

A 32-year-old male was in his parked car on Jubilee Road, on Tuesday, February 4, at around 8.30pm when he was approached by two men who tried to gain access to the vehicle.

The first offender smashed the driver’s side window with a hammer and then used it to hit the victim, who escaped the assault with only a minor injury to his arm.

Detective Constable David Lyons of Bournemouth CID, said: “This assault caused great distress to the victim. It is fortunate that the victim was not more seriously injured.

“The offenders are believed to have escaped in the direction of the footpaths on Jubilee Road.

“It is possible there were other people around in the area at the time who may have witnessed this incident and I urge them to come forward.”

Both of the offenders are described as white and were wearing black balaclavas with oval holes cut out for the person’s eyes and mouth.

One man is described as approximately five foot nine inches tall and of stocky build. He was wearing a black, zip up fleece jacket with a beige or brown horizontal stripe across the front, black trousers and black gloves. He was also carrying a mallet-style hammer with a tubular head with circular white plastic ends.

The other man was wearing a black puffa-style jacket similar to a Berghaus waterproof coat.

Witnesses and anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 4:435 or call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.

The police have the full story but obviously aren't going to put it in the media as it may stop people coming forward!

Very curious use of words in this article, "was in his parked car". Not "had just pulled up" or "was preparing to set off". I agree with other posters here, definitely not the whole story...............
