Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward after a man was bitten by a dog in Bournemouth.

The incident occurred at around 6.30pm on Wednesday 23 June 2021 while the victim – a local man aged in his 50s – was walking along Stokewood Road.

A woman, who was walking two small black and grey terrier-type dogs, had stopped briefly on the road and the victim walked past at a distance when one of the dogs lunged at him and bit him on the calf.

The victim sustained a puncture wound that required medical treatment.

The female dog owner is described as aged in her late 50s or early 60s and of large build with shoulder length grey and blonde hair. She walked with an aluminium walking stick. 

Police Constable Jennie Sykes-Martin, of Dorset Police, said: “The victim did not get contact details for the woman and I am now carrying out enquiries to try and identify her.

“I would ask anyone who witnessed what happened or recognises the woman from the description given to please come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210100981. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call freephone 0800 555 111.
