A MAN has been arrested after £1,000 was stolen during an aggravated burglary last month.

Police were called to reports of an incident at a flat in Meyrick Park Crescent shortly before 4am on Monday, October 9.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was hit on the head with a 'wooden item' and cash stolen after two men broke in through an unlocked door.

Officers investigating the incident say a 33-year-old Bournemouth man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary. He has since been released under investigation.

The victim suffered a head injury, which was not believed to be serious. He was taken to hospital as a precaution.
