A child was knocked over by a group of dogs in Newmarket.

The incident occurred between 5pm and 5.30pm on February 16 at the playing fields off Rowley Drive.

A mother was walking with her two children, one in a pram and one walking, from Millbank to the footpath at the top of the college playing field.

Three unaccompanied dogs ran past them near Millbank. They continued walking and as they reached Colourbox Montessori Nursery the dogs ran back towards them.

The dogs knocked the three-year-old walking child over and he sustained an injury to his head. The dogs also jumped up at the pram.

The dogs ran off and the mother couldn't see the owner.

Two of the dogs have been described as greyhounds or similar.
