Witness appeal after assault in Dorchester

Officers in Dorchester are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after an assault at a pub in the town.

A 52-year-old man from Birmingham was punched in the head twice before he fell to the floor. The offender then kicked the victim in the head.

The incident happened at around 10.55pm on Saturday 2 May 2015 in The George pub on Trinity Street.

The victim was taken to Dorset County Hospital with facial injuries.

The offender is described as a white man in his mid to late 30s, around six feet four inches in height and of medium build. He had short dark hair and was wearing either a red short sleeved shirt or a long sleeved grey top, with blue jeans and black shoes.

He left the pub shortly after the incident and got into a taxi on Trinity Street.

A woman with blonde hair and a blue dress had a picture taken with the victim moments before the assault and officers believe she may know who the offender is.

Police Inspector Neil Wood, of Dorchester police, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may know the offender.

“Anyone who has any information in relation to what happened should contact police, in confidence, on 101.”
