A man in his 20s is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed in the back in Bournemouth.

Dorset Police said the victim was approached by a man on a footpath, known as Spitfire Alley, between Moore Avenue and Pilot Hight Road.

He was taken to Southampton General Hospital where he had surgery on his back and is now in a stable condition.

Police said the attack happened at about 22:30 BST on 31 March and a second man suffered a fractured ankle.

The suspect is described as a man with dark curly hair, about 6ft 1in tall, and who was wearing a dark hooded top and jeans.

Detective Constable Sara Watts, of Bournemouth CID, said she would like to speak to the driver of a dark-coloured BMW that was seen at the scene of the assault.
