Police are asking a dog owner to come forward following an incident involving a teenager in a play park at Montgomery Avenue, north Lowestoft.

A 16-year-old boy was at the park, at about 5.30pm on Friday, March 21 when a man with a black and white border collie-type dog on a lead entered the play area.

The man spoke to the teenager in a friendly way but when the 16-year-old jumped up to get on the zip line the dog also jumped up, nipping the teenager and causing a scratch.

Police need to speak to the owner of the dog and are asking him or anyone with information about who he is to get in touch.

Information to PC Ian Ogley at Lowestoft police on 101.
