Police are appealing for witnesses after a dog attacked another dog and its owner in Ware.
The incident occurred on Tuesday 5 December some time between 4.45pm and 5.15pm on North Drive, High Cross.
It is reported that the victim had been walking their dog on its lead on a towpath when an Alsatian-type dog, which was off its lead, approached them.
It attacked the victim’s dog and when the victim tried to separate them, the dog attacked him too. He was left with injuries to his arm and shin.
The victim quickly left the scene due to the severity of injuries to his dog and rushed it to the vets.
The suspect is described as a white male who was wearing a long black coat.
Sergeant Tim Armstrong, from the East Herts Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Were you in the area at this time and saw this dog attack? Or do you have any further information that may assist our investigation? Please contact me at [email protected].”
