A dog has been attacked while being walked by a 15-year-old boy at a park in Stevenage.
Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a small mix breed dog was bitten in two places by another dog - believed to be a Rottweiler - in Paul Mallaghan Playing Fields on Friday, May 7.
The Rottweiler, which was being walked by a man near to the Epsom Close entrance to the field, attacked the smaller dog at around 4.45pm.
The owner of the suspected Rottweiler managed to get his dog away from the victim’s dog, but then left the playing field without leaving his details.
PC Natasha Angwin said: “It is an offence to have a dog out of control in a public area and the owner should have left his details with the boy before leaving the area.
