Man's Skull Fractured In Weymouth Assault


3:16pm 12th August 2014

A man's fractured his skull after an alleged assault in Weymouth.

It's thought the 52-year-old was pushed through a doorway at Actors Bar between 3am and 4am last Sunday 3 August, 2014.

He suffered bleeding to the brain.

He was initially taken to Dorchester County Hospital and later Southampton General Hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.

Detective Constable Siobhan Lovering, of Weymouth CID, said: "This incident caused a very serious injury.

"As it occurred in a busy area of town a number of people may have witnessed what happened.

"I am appealing for anyone who saw the incident, or has any information about the events leading up to it, to contact Dorset Police."

The victim is described as a white man, of slim build and was wearing jeans, a hooded top and a baseball cap.  

DC Lovering continued: "I am particularly interested in speaking with anyone who saw this man immediately before the incident."  

A 26-year-old man from Portland has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 9:488. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
