Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was bitten by a dog in Aylsham.

The incident happened on Monday 11 August at about 10am when the victim, a woman in her mid-60s, was walking her dog next to the park, locally known as ‘The Cage’ near to Mileham Drive and Marriotts Way.

The victim’s dog was attacked by a Staffordshire bull terrier, one of two dogs being walked by a young girl. The victim intervened and suffered several serious injuries to her hands as a result.

Investigating officer, PC Pauline Gray, said: “The young girl walking the dogs was very distressed by what happened and stated she was walking the dogs for their owners.

“Unfortunately no details were exchanged and we’re keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the owners.

“The victim was bitten several times causing injuries to her hand which will require further hospital treatment.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Gray at Aylsham Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
