Two males have been arrested after a quantity of cash was allegedly stolen during a frightening aggravated robbery in Christchurch.

The police were called at 2:22am this morning (27th June), where a teenager was viciously banging on the doors of two homes on Nelson Drive in Christchurch.

The male teenager was making threats to the occupants of the two households while wielding a knife. Although nobody was injured, the occupants were unsurprisingly shaken by the experience.

Officers carried out a search of the area and arrested two males; a 15-year-old from Bournemouth, and a 19-year-old from Christchurch. Both were arrested on the suspicion of aggravated robbery and are being held while the police investigate this violent incident.

Dorset Police is now making enquiries and is appealing for witnesses to help with their investigation.

Below is a statement from the Bournemouth Criminal Investigation Department:

A full investigation is underway into the incident and officers have been carrying out a thorough examination of the scene.

I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or seen or heard any suspicious activity in the area at the relevant time to please get in touch.

Local officers will be patrolling the area and can be approached with any community concerns.

Detective Inspector Mark Holmes, Dorset Police
