Dorset Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault on a man in Boscombe.
Police say that the attack took place at 7.25pm at a property on Aylesbury Road in Boscombe on on Saturday 18th March.
The 40 year-old victim was cut with what detectives believe to be a small peeling knife. He was taken to hospital for treatment and his condition is not believed to be life threatening.
The offender is described as white, aged 35, five feet ten inches tall and of medium build. He had long stubble and was possibly wearing a grey hooded top, dark blue jeans and a pair of dirty Nike trainers.
Detective constable Amy Burbidge said: “This would appear to have been an unprovoked attack and I would urge anyone who saw a man acting suspiciously in the Aylesbury Road area to please contact Dorset Police.
“Officers from the local neighbourhood policing team have been carrying out high-visibility patrols in the area to offer reassurance to the community and address any direct concerns.”
