An 11-year-old girl has been bitten on the arm by a dog in Saxmundham.

Police are appealing for the owner of the dog to come forward following the incident in Albion Street.

Between 6.30pm and 6.45pm on Friday, July 4 the girl was walking with her friend when she was met by a woman and her dog. The dog bit the victim on her upper arm causing a bite mark and some scratches.

The woman is described as white with short grey/white hair, around 5ft 5ins tall, of average build and aged around 50-year-old. The dog is described as medium sized, black and brown in colour with a long coat.

If you recognise the description of the dog owner or if you have any information about this incident, please call PC Daniel Morse at Halesworth Police Station on 101 quoting reference LE/14/656, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
