Officers are appealing for witnesses after a woman was bitten by a dog in Pittville Park last week.
It was reported that the victim was walking her dog at around 7.25 to 7.30am last Tuesday (18 October) when she passed another man also walking his dog.
The victim explained how the man's dog was initially playing with her dog before it then became aggressive, chased her dog and attacked it.
The man's dog, a Belgian Shepherd, then bit her on the back of her leg causing a large puncture wound and two small puncture wounds. The victim was left temporarily unable to bend her left knee.
The victim said the dog's owner asked her if she was okay which she replied "no, your dog just bit me". He was apologetic but continued to walk his dog and did not provide any details.
The man was described as being white, aged in his 30s and wearing a black coat with a distinctive yellow strip down the side.
If you are the owner of the offending dog or have any information on his identity, please complete the following online form quoting incident 57 of 18 October: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
