Armed unit called to Aylesbury Road, Boscombe, after fracas involving an axe

Bournemouth Echo: Armed police called after row involving axe Armed police called after row involving axe

ARMED police swooped on a residential street in Boscombe on Monday night after being alerted to a man wielding an axe.

Dorset Police confirmed that officers were called to the scene at Aylesbury Road at around 8.30pm after the occupants of two vehicles got into an altercation.

A spokesperson for the force said witnesses reported seeing them in dispute and one was armed with an axe.

She added: “Due to information that weapons were present armed units attended with local response officers to try and locate the offenders.”

An eyewitness, who did not want to be named, said he saw three men attacking a car outside a house on Aylesbury Road near to the junction with Randolph Road.

“They were surrounding the car shouting and kicking it,” he added.

“Then I saw them drive off and about 20 minutes later a police patrol car turned up along with three armed response units. The police stayed there for a couple of hours knocking on doors and investigating.”

Another resident of Aylesbury Road, who also did not want to be named, said she was frightened after hearing loud noises out in the street early on in the evening.

“I could hear shouting and banging. Things like that do happen around here but not usually so early on. It was still light. If it had been midnight I wouldn’t have been so surprised.” she added.

“Then there were three men running away and all of these police showed up.”

There have been no arrests.

Any witnesses should contact police on 101.

This is the third article about violence in Boscombe in todays Echo :
.
"Armed unit called to Aylesbury Road, Boscombe, after fracas" , "CCTV released after man set upon by pair and punched on Christchurch Road in Boscombe" , "Man Stabbed in Boscombe"
.
Would it be fair to say that despite her constant boasting and claims that Boscombe is "on the up" that Jane Kelly is failing to deliver positive change in Boscombe - Perhaps she can explain who is really benefiting from the £million being pumped into the secretive Boscombe Regeneration CIC.

To be honest they should just demolish Boscombe and start again but this time build decent houses which would mean all the druggies ,benefit cheats ,illegal immigrants and ex con's who currently reside in Boscombe will move to an even more depressing place such as Hull ,Birmingham ,Manchester ,Grimsby or Nottingham .....basically anywhere up north - Boscombe along with parts of the Howe estate let down our beautiful seaside resort
