Police Officers investigating two reported assaults in Winton are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
At around 2pm on Saturday 19 September 2020, a man aged in his 40s was assaulted outside Iceland in Wimborne Road in Winton by a male teenager with a glass bottle. The victim sustained a cut to his arm.
Around an hour later the police found another man, also aged in his 40s, with injuries just 100 metres away from the earlier incident, this time near to the Conto Lounge. This man also claimed that he had been assaulted by a teenager who was still at the scene and who had cuts to his face.
A 17-year-old Bournemouth boy was arrested and later charged with wounding with intent, attempted wounding with intent and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place. He appeared at Poole Magistrates’ Court on Monday 21 September 2020 and is next due to appear at the same court on Monday 28 September 2020.
