POLICE are now asking for the public's help in identifying two Staffordshire terriers after they attacked another dog and bit its owner.

The incident happened at around 9pm on Tuesday, July 29 outside the Our Mutual Friend pub in Broadwater Crescent, Stevenage.

A man was walking his dog near the pub when two Staffordshire terriers, which were not on a leash, attacked his dog. When he tried to get them apart, he was bitten on the arm.

The two terriers were taken away by a female, who was described as in her late twenties with blonde hair.

Pc Nathan Lambert said yesterday (Thursday): "This was a distressing attack for the man, and although he sustained minor injuries, he was quite shaken up.

"I am appealing to anyone who may have seen this incident, or who believes they may know of the owner of the Staffordshire terriers, to contact us with information.

"If you can help, please call the non-emergency number on 0845 33 00 222. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
