DETECTIVES investigating a reported serious assault in Bournemouth are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

At 5.47pm on Saturday, October 7, 2017, it was reported that an altercation had taken place involving a group of people at the Kings Arms in Wallisdown Road during which a man in his 50s sustained injuries.

Shortly afterwards a further incident was reported at the school playing field in Talbot Drive. Following this, a 23-year-old man was found unconscious and taken to hospital for treatment to serious injuries. He has since been released from hospital. A teenage boy also sustained minor injuries.

A 29-year-old man and a 40-year-old man, both from Bournemouth, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and have now been released without charge for that offence.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said: "Detectives have carried out a detailed investigation and are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident."

The 29-year-old man has been issued with a postal requisition to appear at Poole Magistrates’ Court on Friday, February 23, for offences of driving without due care and attention and criminal damage to property on the same night.
