A man has been charged in connection with the investigation into the death of a woman in Bournemouth.

Dorset Police received a report at 11.42pm on Friday 24 May 2024 that two people had been stabbed on Durley Chine Beach. Very sadly, 34-year-old Amie Gray, from Poole, died at the scene.

Another woman – aged 38 and also from Poole – was taken to hospital after sustaining serious injuries. She has now been discharged from hospital and we have requested that her privacy is respected as she continues her recovery.

Following detailed enquiries, led by detectives from the Major Crime Investigation Team (MCIT), 20-year-old Nasen Saadi from Croydon was arrested on the evening of Wednesday 29 May 2024.

He has now been charged with murder and attempted murder and was due to appear at Poole Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 1 June 2024.

Detective Superintendent Richard Dixey, of MCIT, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and loved ones of Amie Gray, as well as the woman who was seriously injured, and they have been updated with this latest development in our investigation.

“This matter has been the subject of an extensive investigation and we consulted with the Crown Prosecution Service, which authorised the charges of murder and attempted murder.

“This means the case will now be the subject of active court proceedings and it is vital that the justice system is allowed to follow its course.

“It is also important to stress that there should be no further commentary or sharing of information online or on social media that could potentially prejudice these court proceedings.”
