AN ARREST has been made after three women were involved in a row outside Camel on Saturday morning.

Police were called to an incident outside the popular nightspot in Old Christchurch Road just after 6am.

One woman said she'd been attacked twice, once when she went outside for a cigarette and then again as she left.

A 26-year-old Poole woman was held on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm after the row, which broke out inside the bar at around 5.30am.

Officers investigating the incident said: "At 6.05am on Saturday, officers received a report of an altercation.

"It was reported that at around 5.30am a woman in her 20s had been inside the Camel bar when she was involved in a verbal altercation with two other women.

"The alleged victim was then reportedly assaulted as she left the premises to go out for a cigarette.

"She was then reportedly assaulted again when she was walking away up Old Christchurch Road. She did not require hospital treatment."

The arrested woman has been released under investigation.

It followed a brawl outside a Winton pub late the previous day.

Officers were driving past The Talbot in Wimborne Road when they spotted a fight outside.

They quickly stopped their car and rushed to the scene to find a woman lying on the ground with injuries to her face. She was not seriously hurt, although officers were told a man with her would take her to hospital.

A 23-year-old Bournemouth man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of affray.

However, when officers investigated further, speaking to all those involved, they found the woman hadn't gone to hospital.

None of those involved in the incident wanted to make a complaint.

As a result, the arrested man was released without charge and no further police action was taken.
