Police are investigating allegations of a sexual assault in Weymouth.

The incident was reported to have occurred at around 3.30am on Saturday 13th January at Boombox nightclub on the Esplanade.

The victim - a woman aged in her 20s - was dancing with friends in the club when she was approached by a man from behind.

He pressed up against her before touching her inappropriately on the chest.

The victim challenged the man, but the man repeated his action a short time later. An altercation then occurred between the pair, before the man was ejected from the premises.
