Det Insp Marcus Hester from Dorset Police said: "We can confirm the car driver was involved in the attack on Mr Youseuf.

"We are not looking for anyone else in connection with his murder.

"But, we are appealing for witnesses, specifically around last Thursday evening between 20:00 and 20:30 BST, when we are aware an argument took place in the flat within the premises in Gloucester Road.

"We're also keen to hear from anyone who can give us information about Mr Youseuf himself. His interaction with people, his friends, his employees and how he ran his business."

Mr Youseuf owned the Five Star Car Wash in Gloucester Road.
