OFFICERS investigating a series of Christmas break-ins in Lyme Regis and an assault in Bridport say a man has come forward.
The assault is reported to have occurred at the Esso petrol station shop on East Road, Bridport, at around 1.30am on Wednesday, December 26 when a man was caught on CCTV camera.
The reported burglaries occurred in Lyme Regis over Christmas at the Ocean View restaurant on Marine Parade, Boots and Red Panda on Broad Street, with tip jars and charity collections boxes stolen.
The alarm was also set off at nearby Arthur Fordham & Co but no entry was gained and nothing was stolen.
A 33-year-old man has contacted officers after seeing the appeal and is assisting with the investigation. No arrests have been made.
