TWO people and a dog have been attacked by a loose dog in Worcester.

At about 2.30pm on Sunday (August 28), a grey and white Staffordshire bull terrier not wearing a collar was seen running loose on Leopard Rise.

It attacked another dog, a cocker spaniel, which was being walked by a family, and bit two members of the public, one of whom required hospital treatment.

The injured dog required veterinary treatment and the bull terrier ran off and has not been traced.

A spokesman from the Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police dog unit said: “This was a very upsetting incident for everyone involved, especially two young children who were present throughout.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed it, or has any information about the the offending dog, to come forward so we can speak to its owner.”

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting incident 0487S of 28 August.
