Police launch murder investigation in Bournemouth

Dorset Police have launched a murder investigation and are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a man died in Charminster.

The incident, in which 40-year-old Bournemouth man Andrew Young sustained a serious head injury, happened at around 3.25pm on Wednesday 6 November 2013 outside the Tesco Metro store on Charminster Road. He later died at Southampton hospital.

Mr Young was involved in an altercation with a black man riding a bike and was then punched by another man who was wearing a beanie hat. Also present was a woman wearing a green coat.

Next of kin and the Coroner have been informed.

Detective Inspector Marcus Hester, of the Dorset Police Major Crime Team, said: “I am keen to speak with the man wearing the hat as soon as possible to ascertain exactly what happened.

“I urge him to come forward as soon as possible.”

He is described as a man in his early 20s of mixed race between five feet eight inches and six feet tall. He was wearing a grey hooded top with a logo across the front and a dark grey beanie hat.

DI Hester continued: “I would also like to speak with an older man and woman who I believe were nearby at the time. The woman was wearing a white woollen hat. They are not involved but may be witnesses.

“Due to the time of day of this incident others may have seen or heard something that can assist the investigation.

“Witnesses and anyone with information are asked to contact the police urgently on 101. All calls are treated with the strictest confidence.”

A 19-year-old London man has been arrested and released without charge.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 06:243. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
