Jogger sustains minor calf injuries after dog let off lead at recreation ground in Glemsford
A jogger sustained minor injuries, after being repeatedly nipped at by a dog that had been let off its lead at a recreation ground in Glemsford at the weekend.
The incident took place at the ground near the library and the skate park off Hunts Hill on Saturday.
At around 6.20am, the victim – a woman aged in her 40s – was out jogging, when a black and white border collie approached her and persistently nipped on her calves.
The dog’s owner, who is described as being a tall, white man, aged in his 60s or 70s, shouted at his pet, but it continued to nip at the woman, leaving her with a bruise and a mark on her calf muscle.
The victim then verbally challenged the man about his dog’s behaviour and the fact that it had been allowed off its lead.
Suffolk Police is now appealing for anybody who witnessed what happened to come forward.
If you have any information about the incident or the owner of the dog involved, please contact 101, quoting the reference number 37/21857/20.
