Detectives investigating two sexual assaults in Bournemouth town centre are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

At approximately 1am on Sunday 27 October 2019 a woman aged in her 20s was walking with a friend on Westover Road when she was approached by a man.

It is reported that the man touched the woman’s leg and placed his hand underneath her clothing.

A short while later, a further report was received that a man approached another woman aged in her 20s who was alone on the beach near to Harry Ramsden’s. He kissed the woman and touched her underneath her clothing. The victim ran away from the scene.

It is believed both incidents involved the same offender.

Detective Inspector Gavin House, of Bournemouth CID, said: “These incidents were understandably very distressing for the victims and a full investigation is underway.

“I am releasing an image of someone I would like to speak to as they may have information to assist my investigation and I would urge anyone who may recognise him to come forward.

“I am also appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw any suspicious activity to please get in touch.

“There will be increased patrols in the area and officers from the local neighbourhood policing team can be approached with any concerns.”
