Detectives investigating an aggravated burglary in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
On Sunday 15 October 2017, between 11pm and midnight, an unknown man attended an address asking for a specific person in Talbot Road in the Winton area of town.
While inside the property, the offender assaulted a 19-year-old local man with a baseball bat before attempting to tie him up with cable ties. He stole a number of items from the property including a laptop, phone and watches.
The victim sustained a head injury which is not believed to be serious, but he was taken to hospital as a precaution.
The offender is described as white, aged in his late 20s with light-coloured short hair and facial stubble. He was wearing a green and white windbreaker jacket and carrying a small dark-coloured shoulder bag.
