Police have released a picture of man they would like to speak to in connection with a dog attack in Colchester earlier this week.

Officers received reports that a man was bitten in the hand by a long-haired Alsatian in a field at about 3.10pm on Saturday, September 196

The incident took place in St Johns Road and the man was bitten after his Cockapoo was chased by two long-haired Alsatians.

The dogs then attacked a Cocker Spaniel, causing a puncture wound to its side.

The owner of the Alsatians left with his dogs and refused to give his details.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Colchester police station on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
