Officers in Poole investigating an assault on a teenager in the centre of town are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward â€“ with a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak with being released.
The incident happened at approximately 2.20pm on Sunday 8 June 2014 at the bus station near to the Dolphin Centre.
Police Constable Simon Young, of Poole police, said: â€œA 16-year-old boy from Poole stood with a friend waiting for a bus when an unknown man â€˜barkedâ€™ at him aggressively for no apparent reason. When the victim asked him what he was doing the suspect head-butted him and ran off toward the service road.
â€œThe boy sustained a small cut to his face as a result of the attack.
â€œFollowing enquiries I am now able to release a CCTV image of a man we wish to speak with.Â It is possible that he has information that can assist with the investigation.
â€œI urge the man pictured â€“ or anyone who recognises him â€“ to contact the police as soon as possible.
â€œAll calls are treated with the strictest confidence.â€
