A dog walker in her 60s was left shaken after being verbally abused in Nowton Park.

The incident took place on Friday, September 4 at sometime between 10am and 10.20am in Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds.

The woman was walking her dog when she was approached by two men who insistently asked for details regarding the dog’s breed.

The woman declined to talk to the men and they became verbally abusive.

The woman then picked up her dog and ran off from the park. She was left very shaken as a result of the incident.

Suffolk police have released descriptions of the two men.
