Alert message sent 18/05/2020 13:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating an incident in Poole where a woman was bitten by a dog are issuing an image of two men they would like to speak to as part of their enquiries. 

 At around 1.30pm on Thursday 23 April 2020 the victim – a woman aged in her 60s - was walking her dog on Constitution Hill when she was approached by another dog which became aggressive and bit her on the arm causing four puncture wounds. The victim’s dog was also injured in the incident.

 The dog’s owner asked the victim if she was all right, but did not leave his details.

 The dog is described as a dark-coloured Staffordshire Bull Terrier or Rottweiler-type breed.

 Police Constable Riona Hanley, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to make enquiries into this incident and I have now obtained an image of two men I would like to speak to. 

“I appreciate the image is not of the best quality but I would urge anyone who may recognise the men pictured in the images to please get in touch.”
