A man was punched and robbed at a cashpoint in Christchurch Road on Thursday.
Now police detectives are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footgae to come forward to assist with enquiries.
The men are described as aged in their early 20s, approximately five feet seven to five feet nine inches tall, possibly of Arabic descent and of slim build. They were all dressed in black clothing.
The incident occurred at 10.18pm on Thursday 13 January at a cash machine outside Premier Crescent Food Hall in Christchurch Road, Boscombe.
The victim – a man from Bournemouth aged in his 40s – was withdrawing cash from the machine when he was approached by two men, who were verbally abusive toward him.
The victim asked the men to step back, but they subsequently punched him. It is reported that a third man then approached and became involved in the incident. During this time, the victim’s bank card was stolen.
Detective Constable Jo Regan, of Bournemouth CID, said: “An investigation is underway to identify those responsible for this incident.
“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed what happened to please come forward.
“I would also ask motorists who were travelling in the Christchurch Road area of Boscombe around the relevant time to please check their dashcam for any footage to help my enquiries.”
Boran, who works at the Premier Crescent Food Hall where the incident took place, said: “I’ve been here for three years and this is the first time anything like this has happened.”
The victim did not sustain any injuries that required hospital treatment.
