Dog attack in Haverhill leads to a police appeal for information

Police are appealing for help to trace the owner of a dog after a woman in her 70s was bitten in Haverhill.

The incident occurred at about 2pm on Wednesday, April 3 on Wratting Road, near Tesco.

The victim was walking down the slope near the store when she passed a woman walking two dogs. As she passed, one of the dogs turned around and bit the victim on the back of her calf. She subsequently required hospital treatment for her injury.

The owner apologised but walked away following the incident and officers would like to trace her to speak to her. She is described as white, in her 40s or 50s, and of medium build. She has shoulder-length dark hair and was wearing all dark clothing.

She was walking two dogs; one was a small white dog, and the dog that caused the injury is described as a brown, long-haired dog similar to a Shih Tzu.

Anyone with information about this incident, or who believes they may know the owner of the dog, is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference 37/19074/19.
