Woman Suffers Serious Injuries After Fall

Detectives are delving into the details surrounding an unsettling incident in Bournemouth where a woman reportedly fell from a second-storey window. At precisely 9.27am on Wednesday 16 August 2023, the Dorset Police responded to the scene at the confluence of Christchurch Road, Ashley Road, and Heathcote Road, located in the Boscombe district.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, suffered severe injuries from the fall. Both the police and ambulance services promptly arrived on site, establishing a security cordon around the area. Subsequently, she was rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

Further intensifying the gravity of the situation, a local Bournemouth man in his 50s has been detained under suspicion of false imprisonment.
