Police have appealed for information after a teenager was bitten by a dog at Clacton.
The 13-year-old boy was walking his family dog on a lead when it was attacked by another dog, believed to be a German Shepherd.
The teenager was bitten when he tried to stop the other dog, which was not on a lead, from biting his own pet on the face.
He was later taken to hospital and treated for about 13 puncture wounds under his right forearm.
The incident happened at about 2.30pm on Saturday, October 5 in an alleyway between Clacton airfield and Millers Barn golf club and Jaywick Lane.
Officers now want to trace the other dog’s owner, a woman in her 50s or 60s, of chubby build and with shoulder-length curly brown/grey hair. She was walking two dogs, both believed to be German Shepherds, one white, short-haired and the other brown, long-haired.
Any witnesses, or anyone who can identify the owners of the two dogs, should contact Pc Nikki Heath at Clacton police station on 101.
