Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating an incident in which a teenage girl was bitten by a dog in Weymouth are issuing an image of a woman they would like to speak to.

 At approximately 2.30pm on Saturday 7 November 2020 the 14-year-old girl was pushing her scooter along High Street, Wyke Regis, while doing her paper round when she walked past a woman with two dogs.

 One of the dogs sniffed the girl’s leg before biting her, making a hole in her leggings and puncturing the skin.

 The woman walked off with the dogs without saying anything.

 Police Constable Jennie Sykes-Martin, of Dorset Police, said: “The girl took a photo of the woman as she walked away and I am appealing to anyone who recognises her to please contact us.

“I would also like to appeal directly to the woman involved in this incident to come forward so we can take your account.”
