Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


A man has come forward following an image appeal in relation to a reported dog bite incident in Bournemouth.

At around 4.15pm on Tuesday 10 August 2021 a woman aged in her 50s was walking her elderly dog in a field at Hengistbury Head when a man with two Spaniel-type dogs walked past her. 

Initially the dogs were on a lead but when he let them off they ran back toward the woman’s dog and were allegedly aggressive toward it. It is reported that the woman went to intervene and was bitten on the hand, causing a puncture wound.

Following an image appeal, a man has come forward and is assisting officers with their investigation. No arrests have been made.
