Dog incident in Thurston

Police are appealing for help to trace the owner of a dog after a man was bitten in Thurston.

The incident occurred at some point between 4:30pm and 4:45pm on Monday 3 June on Station Hill, outside the Co-op food store.

The victim had just exited the store when he passed a brown dog, possibly a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, which was tied to a post. As he passed, the unsupervised dog is said to have jumped at him, biting and ripping his shorts. The victim was left shaken but was otherwise uninjured.

The victim spoke with a man who had also been in the store and who is believed to be the owner of the dog. 

Officers would like to speak with this man, who is described as white, in his late teens or early 20s and of slim build. He has shoulder-length blonde hair and was wearing a camouflage hat.

Anyone with information about this incident, or who believes they may know the owner of the dog, is asked to visit quoting reference 37/33398/19 or contact the Incident and Crime Management Hub at Suffolk Police on 101.
