SIX teenagers are due to appear in court in connection with an alleged incident that left two men with stab wounds.

Dorset Police say the reported violent disorder took place in Albert Road, Bournemouth town centre, around 12.45am on Saturday, June 15.

It was reported that a group of four men, all in their 20s and who were visiting the resort for the weekend, were attacked by a group of teenagers.

The men fled to an address on Richmond Hill, police say, where they called the emergency services.

One of the group was treated for four suspected stab wounds to his leg and back. He was taken to hospital for injuries not thought to be life-threatening.

A second man also sustained a suspected stab wound to his leg, which was also not thought to be life-changing.

Six teenage boys were arrested in connection with the incident and, following enquiries by detectives from Bournemouth CID, have been issued with postal requisitions to appear at court.

A 16-year-old boy has been issued with a postal requisition to appear at Poole Youth Court on Tuesday 28 January 2020 for an offence of assault.

The other five boys – two aged 14, two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old, all from Bournemouth – have all been issued with postal requisitions to appear at the same court on the same date for an offence of violent disorder.
