Man, 20, charged with murder of woman who was stabbed on Bournemouth beach

A 20-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a personal trainer who was stabbed on a Bournemouth beach last Friday.

Amie Gray, 34, died on Durley Chine Beach after being attacked despite the efforts of paramedics who rushed to the scene, and another woman, 38, was also left with “serious injuries” after being stabbed and remains in hospital.

Dorset Police said Nasen Saadi from Croydon, who was arrested on Wednesday, has now been charged with murder and attempted murder, and will appear at Poole Magistrates’ Court tomorrow to face the charges.

Detective Superintendent Richard Dixey, 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 have now consulted with the Crown Prosecution Service, which has 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.”

Ms Gray paid heartfelt tributes to her following her death.

Michelle Small described her as a “lovely young girl”, adding : “Devastated by this. Worked with Amie Gray in her very first job when she turned 17. She was always the kindest, lovely young girl and continued to be so throughout her cruelly cut short life. RIP beautiful girl.”

Another friend, Nicola Smale, said: “Fly high Amie Gray, I’ll miss you so much. I feel so heavy! You were such a good friend and someone I could call about anything. A beautiful person inside and out, thank you for all the laughs and memories I will cherish forever.”

Alice Fraser added: “You lit up the room with your fun and bubbly presence.”
