TWO people have been arrested after a woman was struck with a baseball bat in Bournemouth.

At around 8.10pm on Sunday, March 28, the victim, a woman aged in her 30s, was standing outside a row of shows in Cunningham Crescent when a man and a woman got out of a silver Mercedes car and approached her.

The man reportedly hit her several times in the head with a baseball bat and the woman allegedly stamped on her arm as she was on the ground.

The man and woman were known to the victim, who sustained cuts to her head, bruising to her face and jaw and a bruise on her arm.

And police have now arrested a 28-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both from Poole, on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

The man was also arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent.

They are both currently assisting police with their enquiries.
