Man wanted after conviction for vicious assault

November 21, 2012, 6:28 pm

Detectives in Bournemouth are renewing their appeal to locate a man convicted of a serious assault in Charminster – with the mans picture being shown on national television tonight.

Mohamed Tabte viciously attacked a man outside Peppinos Restaurant along Charminster Road at around 2am on Sunday 22 January 2012. The victim, from Bournemouth, sustained serious head injuries.

Tabte, a 39-year-old living in Bournemouth at the time of the attack, was convicted of grievous bodily harm and was due to be sentenced in June 2012, but he failed to attend and police have not been able to locate him.

An image of Tabte is due to appear on BBC1s Crimewatch tonight, Wednesday 21 November 2012.

It is not known where he is residing and its possible that he has left the country.

Detective Constable Tristan Downie, of Bournemouth CID, said: “Mohamed Tabte was found guilty of an extremely nasty and unprovoked attack that left the victim with numerous skull and jaw fractures, resulting in a bleed on the brain and permanent damage.

“He is a dangerous man and I would like to renew our appeal for the publics help in finding him so that he can be sentenced and brought to justice.

“Should anyone see and recognise Tabte we advise that they do not approach him, but phone Dorset Police immediately on 999.”

Mohammed Tabte is described as approximately five feet nine inches tall, of slim build with short black hair and is of Middle Eastern appearance.

DC Downie continued: “The conviction of Mohamed Tabte was only possible thanks to the coverage provided by local media and the resultant assistance of the public.

“Im hoping that todays appeal will yield similar success and Id urge anyone with any information to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible.”

Anyone who sees Mohamed Tabte should phone 999 immediately. Anyone else with other information about him should contact Dorset Police in confidence on 101.
