An 18-year-old woman was seriously sexually assaulted by two men while searching for her mobile phone in Bournemouth Gardens.

The attack happened near the crazy golf facility between 2300 BST and midnight on Saturday.

Two men, who claimed to know where her phone was, "lured" the woman into bushes before assaulting her, police said.

An 18-year-old Bournemouth man was arrested over the offence.

He was later released on bail with inquiries continue.

Det Con Nick Hodge said: "I am keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity around the crazy golf facility."

The attackers are described by police as white and aged 16 to 18, and one was wearing a grey top.
