In the early hours of Sunday 28 November, 2021 officers were called to reports of a fight at a party near Blandford between two men. No complaints were made to officers at the scene, so they took one of the men involved in the incident back to his accommodation.
It is alleged that at 4.30am, while travelling along the A31 at West Almer heading toward the Roundhouse roundabout in a marked police car, the man removed his seatbelt, leaned forward and strangled a female police officer in the car. The officers stopped the car and attempted to restrain the man. A man stopped at the scene and helped the officers.
“I am appealing for this male Good Samaritan to please get in touch with us as he may have information that could assist my investigation.”
