THREE people were arrested after a man was stabbed in Boscombe.

Police investigated two properties after the 41-year-old from Bournemouth was attacked in Christchurch Road, Boscombe, late on Monday night.

He was left with superficial wounds and two men and a woman were arrested.

The men, a 28-year-old and a 44-year-old, remain in custody.

A 46-year-old woman was released without charge.

The force confirmed that it was called to the scene at Fernwood Court, Christchurch Road, shortly before midnight to reports of the attack.

This morning forensics officers continued to carry out investigations at the scene.

A security guard was standing outside the property and another was based in the neighbouring block of flats.

Police later confirmed it was carrying out investigations at both locations in connection with the incident.

A spokesperson for South West Ambulance Service confirmed it received a call at 11.58pm and a male casualty was taken to Poole Hospital for treatment.

Boscombe ward councillor Jane Kelly said the incident was upsetting and that police had gone on a special patrol to reassure people who live nearby.

One resident of the block neighbouring Fernwood Court, who did not want to be named, said her children had been woken by the commotion in the night.

She added: “We saw the police, it woke my two kids in the middle of the night and was frightening for them.”

Another resident from the neighbouring block, who also did not want to be named, said she had seen the flashing blue lights late at night and the police had carried out door-to-door inquiries.

Safety reassurances from community leaders after spate of crime in Boscombe

COMMUNITY leaders in Boscombe have reassured residents that the area is “still safe” after the spate of crime on Monday night.

Ward councillor Phil Stanley-Watts said it was particularly disappointing to hear of these developments given the recent efforts to regenerate the area.

“It is very, very sad these events have happened here,” he added.

“There is no place for these people in Boscombe.

“There are a lot of very friendly people here, a lot of different cultures, shops and the beach has been packed out.

“I can assure people that police are doing all they can. Boscombe is one of the most policed areas in Dorset.

“I still feel Boscombe is a safe place. I live here and would never live anywhere else. Everybody is so friendly. That is the tragedy of these events.”

Cllr Jane Kelly said: “I think the first thing to say is that they are isolated incidents and not symptomatic of something breaking out.

“These things happen all over the place, all of the time. When it happens in Boscombe everyone throws up their arms.”

Cllr Chris Wakefield praised the quick police response to both incidents but stressed they were isolated incidents.

“It is very worrying these happened almost concurrently,” he added.

“I hope the injured man makes a full recovery.”

Of course they don't exclude Boscombe from the violent crime statistics. They just exclude violent crime from the violent crime stats - it looks so much better and get's a good media headline.

Are you serious, a man armed with an axe is not a violent crime, what do you think he was doing then, going down to the local knitting club, I'm sure if I was wielding an axe during an argument the police would look at that quite seriously, that is of course if they managed to turn up in time.

You have to laugh at the self delusion of the police and council sometimes.
I work outside, near the area where Bournemouth and Boscombe police boundaries meet (Holdenhurst Rd,near the railway station)
Every day I look on in amazement at the Dickensian scene that unfolds before my eyes.Great big gangs sometimes 30 plus of drunk,or drugged, down and outs aggressively,begging and,scamming ,many with severe mental issues,they are allowed to roam the streets ,causing all sorts of mayhem,theft assaults,litter,anti social behavior, and various forms of crime ,with impunity.In my several years working in this area I don't think I have ever seen a police officer just on patrol,or any agency making any attempt to do anything about the problem.(the police will come eventually if called to something that has all ready happened but usually by the time they arrive everyone has gone on their merry way) These groups of merry souls are so confident they will be unmolested by the forces of law and order I have seen them shooting up,defecating and all the other associated pleasantries they engage in on a daily basis.
This as you can imagine dear reader, is a lovely and edifying site,and a true Bournemouth welcome, for the groups of tourists and students as they step off the train and try to negotiate past this rabble.
Can I make a suggestion to the councilors who happily paid some New Zealanders many millions to throw a few sandbags into the sea.
Why not embrace this motley collection of misfits dress them up as some sort of Dickensian theme park interactive show, make out its a part of the planned festivities of the Bournemouth experience.(come to think of it no costumes fake blood,snot,or vomit will be required.
No thanks needed for my positive tourist contribution,If you think I'm being naive or delusional just look at the facebook pages of the police ,etc

“These things happen all over the place, all of the time. When it happens in Boscombe everyone throws up their arms.”

No,Cllr Kelly, you threw your arms in the air at the failure to regenerate the area and your constant deceit to the residents and traders that the area is on the up.

Any area that needs a police box is certainly in trouble.Not only do you have police officers and pcso's but you have neighbourhood wardens and now safety patrol officers.With all that amount of presence doesn't enhance the area.Resign,Kelly, you are not a politician but a busybody with no idea on the area both in past, present and future.

So when the paper says 'Security guard' do they mean an officer standing guard or someone from a private security firm?

This as you can imagine dear reader, is a lovely and edifying site,and a true Bournemouth welcome, for the groups of tourists and students as they step off the train and try to negotiate past this rabble.
Can I make a suggestion to the councilors who happily paid some New Zealanders many millions to throw a few sandbags into the sea.
Why not embrace this motley collection of misfits dress them up as some sort of Dickensian theme park interactive show, make out its a part of the planned festivities of the Bournemouth experience.(come to think of it no costumes fake blood,snot,or vomit will be required.
No thanks needed for my positive tourist contribution,If you think I'm being naive or delusional just look at the facebook pages of the police ,etc
I used to live in the heart of Boscombe (next to the Crescent) for 3 1/2 years and never saw scenes like this. Evidently that part of town is much rougher than the Crescent!

there was not an axe attack. a man in possession of an axe is not a violent crime nor an attack.

Halved the crime rate in boscombe for 30 may. maybe I should become a PCC.
Are you serious, a man armed with an axe is not a violent crime, what do you think he was doing then, going down to the local knitting club, I'm sure if I was wielding an axe during an argument the police would look at that quite seriously, that is of course if they managed to turn up in time.
oddly, I had an argument with my flat mate that involved and axe last weekend. He was chopping wood on a paving slab and cracked it. now is that a violent crime? we were arguing and he was holding an axe. context is everything and you do not know the context secondly, an attack indicates physical harm which you have no clue if it took place. Crime Statistics are just that statistics, keep you conjecture to yourself. and yes im serious a man in possession of an axe is not a violent crime perhaps he is a lumber jack ;)

No Blair didn't make such cuts, he just started spending which spiralled out of control under the Labour government. Hence the cuts now to try and get the country out of the desperate financial state it's in.
The cuts that are hitting the most vulnerable in society? By vulnerable I am not talking about druggies, alkies and vagrants.
In order to reform a failed economy, you are going to upset people. People who are losing out are people who relied on government money that simply isn't there in the real world. It's far too big a debate to have on a newspaper chat forum because everyone thinks differently. However, you look to the future during such measures being made so that your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren etc etc will have the chance to live in a stable and fair economic climate. The people that work hard, earn and protect their future deserve everything they have, people that don't, simply don't.

This story is so minor, it barely warrants a mention. The Echo only covers these kinds of stories about Boscombe because it knows it'll get a torrent of the usual unimaginative and predictable quips (e.g. from smhinto) about Boscombe. It can then go to its advertisers armed with these contributor figures to say 'look, all those people engaging with our fantastic content, how good is that?...'. Get wise people.

COMMUNITY leaders in Boscombe have reassured residents that the area is “still safe” after the spate of crime on Monday night.

Ward councillor Phil Stanley-Watts said it was particularly disappointing to hear of these developments given the recent efforts to regenerate the area.

My days of knowing the odd slightly dodgy type and the odd dealer are long gone and about all I could provide them intel on is the odd bit of low down on a few drivers who shouldn't be behind the wheel (well by that I mean I live in Christchurch and regularly see people who can barely see, walk, hear or turn their heads properly out and about driving - although to be fair they are at least genuine blue badge holders)

If you get involved with these kind of people then its your own fault for doing so. You can walk through every street in Boscombe all day and night and nothing will happen to you unless you create the problem yourself.
