The path next to the River Stour near to Brook Road in Wimborne is a popular spot for walkers so if you were there at around 12.15pm on Thursday 18 March you might have witnessed a man being bitten by a dog.
The local man in his 70s noticed a woman sitting on a bench with an Alsatian or German Shepherd-type dog on a lead. The woman was on her phone and when she saw the victim she got up and walked to the other side of the bench.
It is reported that as the victim walked past the woman struggled to control the dog and it bit him on the bottom twice.
The victim turned around, but the dog was barking and baring its teeth at him so he left the scene and did not take the owner’s details.
The owner is described as white, five feet 10 inches tall, of slim build and in her 30s. She had medium-length light brown hair and was wearing blue jeans.
The dog was mainly grey in colour, possibly with black colouring.
Police Constable Jennie Sykes-Martin, of Dorset Police, said, “I am appealing for the owner or anyone who recognises her or the dog described to please come forward and help me with my investigation so I can take an account and establish what happened.”
