November 17, 2014, 6:17 pm

Officers in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward following an alleged affray in the town – with one man being arrested.


The incident happened at approximately 1am on Sunday 16 November 2014 outside the Actors pub in Maiden Street when a disturbance broke out.

Police received reports that a bottle was thrown at a crowd of people outside the venue and one woman was racially abused.

It is understood one woman sustained cuts to her leg as a result of the bottle smashing.

Police Constable Elaine Leader, of Weymouth police, said: “I am keen to trace this woman who was injured during the incident.

“I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed what happened outside the Actors pub in the early hours of Sunday morning.

“Anyone with information that may assist my investigation should contact Dorset Police.”

A 20-year-old man from Poole was arrested on suspicion of affray and has been released on police bail until mid-December pending further enquiries.


Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 16:40. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
