The victim, a woman in her mid-60s, was bitten at around 10am on August 11.

She was walking her dog next to a park, locally known as the cage, near Mileham Drive and Marriott’s Way.

The victim’s dog was first attacked by the Staffordshire bull terrier, one of two dogs being walked by a young girl.

The woman in her mid-60s then intervened and suffered several serious injuries to her hands as a result.

Investigating officer, PC Pauline Gray, said: “The young girl walking the dogs was very distressed by what happened and stated she was walking the dogs for their owners.

“Unfortunately no details were exchanged and we’re keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the owners.

“The victim was bitten several times causing injuries to her hand which will require further hospital treatment.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Gray at Aylsham police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
