Dorset Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault at Wiggle Gentleman’s Club on Old Christchurch Road, at 4am on Sunday 15 March 2020.

It is reported that a man in his 30s became aggressive towards the victim, after the victim accidentally bumped into the wanted man. Following the accident, the man threw a glass at the victim, causing a deep cut on the victim’s face.

Dorset Police has now issued a CCTV appeal for any witnesses who were present and can provide more information about the offender.

We are continuing to investigate this incident and I am now in a position to release a CCTV image of a man we would like to speak to.

I appreciate the image is not of the best quality, but I am hoping that someone will recognise the man pictured.

I would urge anyone with information as to his identity to please contact us.

Police Constable Hollie Wilson
