Girl Attacked While Waiting For A Bus


2:31pm 20th October 2014

A 16-year-old girl has been attacked by a man in Weymouth as she sat waiting for a bus.

Police say it happened around 3.15pm, last Wednesday afternoon (15 October) at the bus stop next to Weymouth Hospital on Dorchester Road.

The man, who'd been drinking grabbed her arm to pull her off a bench.

A passing member of the public asked the victim if she was alright, she replied that she wasn't and the passer-by told the man to 'clear off', which he did.  

Although this appears to be an isolated incident, it occurred during a time of day where it would be anticipated that members of the public would be in the area and may remember seeing this man.  

The offender is described as white, of slim build, around five feet 10 inches and in his late forties. He was wearing black jogging bottoms, a black Nike hooded top and a grey beanie hat. The black hoodie was up over the top of the grey beanie.  

Police Constable Jane Bayliss, of Weymouth police, said: "The man was heavily intoxicated and slurring his words. This incident left the victim badly shaken and upset, particularly as she regularly uses this bus stop.

"I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has any details about the man responsible. Anyone with information that may assist my investigation should contact Dorset Police."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 15:0352. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
