A man has been bitten by a dog after indecently assaulting a woman in a quiet Norfolk village.
Police were called to Mill Lane in Great Ellingham at around 8.30 pm Tuesday, June 11, after reports a man had approached a woman dog walker from a nearby field and began to touch her inappropriately.
The victim passed out after the assault but said she believes her dog bit the attacker, prompting him to run from the scene.
