Police investigating an incident that occurred near the Wessex Way close to Springbourne roundabout last month have arrested a man.
A 32 year old man was charged in connection with the incident. According to sources a woman was walking in the Springbourne area when she was approached by the man who showed her pornographic images on his mobile. She was then threatened with sexual attacks. The man then left the scene when a member of public approached them.
The man has also been charged with two offences of ‘displaying any writing, sign or visible representation with intent to cause harassment, alarm or distress’ in relation to two other incidents.
These incidents occurred on Monday 11 November 2019 in Wimborne Road and Columbia Road in Bournemouth. It is alleged that the same man approached two other women and also showed them pornographic images on his mobile phone.
The accused man has already appeared at Poole Magistrates’ Court and is next due to appear at Bournemouth Crown Court for the formal hearing on Thursday 13 February 2020.
