Police are trying to trace a man they believe to be from Horsham after an assault during a stag party in Dorset.

Dorset Police have issued a photograph of a man who they believe to be from Horsham they wish to speak to in connection with an assault at a paintballing centre in Christchurch.

Police say the incident happened at around 4pm on Saturday, May 21 and involved a group of men paintballing as part of a stag party.

One of the men became aggressive with a member of staff and he was asked to hand back his paintballing gun.

Police say the man responded by pulling the weapon away from staff and hitting one of them on the head. He then ripped off the victim’s face mask, scratching his face.

Police Constable Geoffrey Avey-Hebditch of Dorset Police, said: “I would urge anyone with information about the man pictured here or his whereabouts to contact Dorset Police.”

This can be done by emailing 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, asking for Dorset Police and quoting incident number 21:246.

Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 (www.crimestoppers-uk.org).
