Ellough – Dangerous dog incident

Police are appealing for witnesses following a dangerous dog attack in Ellough.

The incident took place between 6pm and 6.30pm on Thursday 2 July, on a field between Sandpit Lane and the A146.

A woman was out walking her dog when she encountered a man walking three dogs, two of which were on leads and one which was off its lead.

As she passed the man, one of the dogs on a lead – an Alsatian – jumped up and bit her on the arm, causing an injury which required treatment at hospital.  

Officers would like to trace the man to talk to him about this incident. He is described as stocky and is believed to have driven the dogs to the field in an orange van.

The victim also believes there was another man in the field at the time who may have witnessed the attack and officers are keen to trace him as well.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Neighbourhood Response Team at Lowestoft Police Station quoting reference: 37102/20.
