Police are appealing for witnesses and information following reports of a dog being dangerously out of control in Hemel Hempstead.
The incident occurred at around 7.55pm on Thursday 24 August in the woods close to Rants Meadow.
It is reported that the victim had been walking in the woods when a greyhound style breed dog off a lead approached him and bit his hand.
The dog’s owner was believed to be apologetic for the dog’s behaviour and tried to get it onto the lead.
The victim sustained an injury to the hand which required hospital treatment.
PC James Stockwell, from the Dacorum Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Our enquiries are continuing, and we are appealing for anyone with information to please come forward.
“We are appealing to speak to the owner of the dog who is described as a white woman in her 60’s with short grey hair.
Anyone with information is asked to email PC Stockwell.
You can also report information online, speak to an operator in our Force Communications Room via our online web chat or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/68184/23. In an emergency, always dial 999.
Alternatively, you can stay 100% anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their untraceable online form.
