Officers investigating criminal damage to a vehicle in Poole are appealing for anyone with information or footage to come forward.

At around 3.40pm on Wednesday 2 March 2022 a man aged in his 30s was driving his car along the Dorset Way toward the Tower Park Roundabout with a child in the vehicle. As they approached the bridge linking Tower Park to Mannings Heath, he witnessed a group of three or four teenagers throwing items off the bridge. 

The vehicle was stuck by what was believed to be a rock and the windscreen was damaged, but fortunately there were no injuries caused to the occupants.

Police Constable Tom Henley, of Poole police, said: “This was extremely dangerous behaviour by the individuals involved that could have had serious consequences for the motorist and his child in the vehicle.

“Fortunately, they were not injured but we remain determined to identify those responsible.

“I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time and either witnessed the incident or may have captured anything of relevance on dashcam footage to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email [email protected] or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55220034538. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
