Detectives continuing to investigate two sexual assaults in Bournemouth town centre are issuing further images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incidents.

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.
