Detectives investigating an assault in Bournemouth town centre are issuing CCTV images of the suspect.

At around 3am on Saturday 30 March 2019 the victim, a man aged in his 20s, went to intervene in an altercation outside Walkabout in Old Christchurch Road involving a man and two women.

He stood in front of one of the girls to protect her and the man became aggressive, pushing the victim backwards before they both fell to the ground. During a struggle on the ground the victim felt the man pulling and scratching at his face.

After others intervened, the victim was able to get away and discovered blood coming from cuts to his face. He went to hospital where he was treated for a torn eyelid and injury to his tear duct that required surgery.
