Police appeal after money taken from pensioner

An 87-year-old man was approached by another man outside Royal Bournemouth Hospital and intimidated into giving over his money.

This type of crime is very distressing to the victim. I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or observed any suspicious activity in the area to contact police as soon as possible.

I would ask the local community to be extra vigilant to this type of crime as the offender targeted a vulnerable man.

I urge anyone who has become a victim of such an offence who has yet to report this to contact Dorset Police immediately on the non-emergency number 101."

– Michaela Jephcott, Bournemouth Police Constable, said:
