A witness appeal has been launched after a dog was attacked by another dog in Stevenage.

The incident is alleged to have taken place at Fishers Green Common on Thursday May 15, at around 4.50pm. The owner and her partner were walking their dog when it was attacked by another dog resulting in bruising. The owner of the offending dog was then allegedly aggressive and abusive to the couple.

Investigating Officer PC Darryl Hancock said: “A lady passing by did witness the incident and offered her details to the couple, and we are very keen to speak to her and are hoping she will get in touch. We are also keen to speak to anyone else who may have witnessed the incident.”

The owner of the offending dog is described as a white man, in his late 20s to early 30s, slim build, with short cropped blonde hair, shaved at the sides and spikey on top. He was, wearing a dark coloured tank top and jeans. His dog was described as a very muscular blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier with a white patch on the chest. There was also a boy with him.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Darryl on 101 quoting crime reference E1/14/2930.
