A woman was left bleeding and with a number of puncture wounds, after she was bitten by a dog in a popular Stevenage park earlier this month.
On Thursday, September 17, a woman was walking in St Nicholas Park when she was approached by a large dog off the lead.
The dog bit her arm, causing three puncture wounds and what police describe as “extensive bleeding”.

The dog was put back on the lead by the owner, who walked off in the direction of Great Ashby.
PSCO Chloe Scott, of Stevenage safer neighbourhood team, said: “This was obviously incredibly distressing for the victim.
“This park is popular with dog walkers, and we believe that there would have been a number of witnesses at the time of the attack.”
