Investigation underway following stabbing in Bournemouth

A police investigation is underway after a man was found with stab wounds in Bournemouth.

Dorset Police were called to Gervis Place at 6.35pm on Monday (13 May) where a man had been found with stab injuries.

The man was taken to hospital for treatment, but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Police, including armed officers, attended the scene and carried out a search of the area.

Road closures were put in place so the emergency services could deal with the incident and so an examination of the scene could take place.

A 19-year-old Poole man who was arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent has been released from custody without charge.

Searches and enquiries are ongoing to identify potential suspects involved in the incident.

Dorset Constabulary said there is likely to be an increased police presence in the area as these efforts continue.
