Police appeal over assault

Detectives in Swanage are appealing for witnesses after an 18-year-old man from Swanage suffered head injuries in an assault that led to him receiving hospital treatment. Two 19-year-old men have been arrested and bailed while enquiries continue.

The incident happened in Institution Road, Swanage, at around 10.30pm on 9th July 2012. During the arrest in Shore Road, Swanage, at around 11.45pm, a Special Constable received injuries which required hospital treatment. Anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101.

I understand that a number of people were walking nearby and it may be that some of these people witnessed these incidents. I am appealing for anyone who may have seen the incidents in the Institute Road and Shore Road area on Monday evening to contact me urgently."
