Officers investigating a public order incident in Christchurch are issuing images of two people they would like to speak to.

The incident occurred at around 5.10pm on Thursday 25 June 2020 in the area of River Way. The victim – a man aged in his 60s – saw two men on an inflatable dinghy on the River Stour and one of them threw a can into the river. When he challenged the men, the victim was verbally abused by them and was forced to call the police.

Officers arrived and the men were also abusive toward them before making off from the scene.

Police Constable Sam Kinsella, of Christchurch police, said: “We are continuing to make enquiries into this incident and have obtained images of two people we would like to speak to as part of our investigation.

“I would urge anyone with information as to their identity to please contact us.”
