Police appeal after Kessingland dog attack

Police are appealing for the female owner of a small black dog to come forward after the animal bit a woman.

The incident happened outside a shop in Field Lane at Kessingland, near Lowestoft, at about 4.50pm on Saturday.

The 41-year-old victim suffered bruising to her thigh after the dog, which was tied up outside the shop, jumped up and bit her.

A short time later the victim spoke to a woman who appeared to be the owner of the dog.

The incident with the dog was later reported to police and officers are now asking the woman with the dog to come forward.

The woman who owned the dog is described as being in her late 20s to early 30s, slim and with blonde hair that was tied. She was wearing a brown Parka-style coat with cream-coloured fur around the hood, blue leopard print leggings and pink Wellies.

Anyone with information about the dog owner or the attack should telephone Lowestoft police on 101.
