Officers are looking for a dog owner after a man was bitten in Thurston last week.
The incident occurred at some point between 4.30pm and 4.45pm on Monday, June 3 on Station Hill, outside the Co-op food store.
The victim had just exited the store when he passed a brown dog, possibly a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, which was tied to a post.
As he passed, the unsupervised dog is said to have jumped at the man, biting and ripping his shorts. The victim was left shaken but was otherwise uninjured.
The victim also spoke with a man who had also been in the store and who is believed to be the owner of the dog.
