Police are appealing for a boy who was out walking a dog in the Castleton Avenue area of Carlton Colville to come forward after a teenager suffered “puncture wounds” to his calf.
A 16-year-old boy was cycling across the pelican crossing about 6pm to 6.30pm last Tuesday (February 5) when he was injured after being bitten by the dog.
The teenager was heading towards Uplands Road South when he overtook a boy – described as about 12 to 15-years-old, white, about 5ft 7ins tall, of average build, wearing a black hooded top, tracksuit bottoms and trainers – who was walking a black Staffordshire terrier type dog.
A police spokesman said: “Despite the dog being on a lead it attacked the 16-year-old causing puncture wounds and bruising to his calf. The boy regained control of the dog and apologised but his details were not taken by the 16-year-old.”
● Police need to speak to the boy and are asking him or anyone with information about who he is, or anyone who saw the incident, to call the Lowestoft South Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
Police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a garden pond today.
