TWO men arrested in connection with a stabbing in Boscombe have been released on bail.

The men, a 28-year-old and 44-year-old, both from Bournemouth, were taken into custody after a 41-year-old man was attacked at a property on Christchurch Road late on Monday night.

A police spokesperson confirmed the men have been released on bail until early September.

Police were called shortly before midnight on Monday to the incident at Fernwood Court and the victim was taken to Poole Hospital for treatment. He sustained superficial wounds.

A 46-year-old woman also arrested had earlier been released without charge.

On Tuesday forensic officers attended the scene and police confirmed it was investigating two properties in relation to the incident.
