Appeal after woman bitten by dog in Littlehampton

Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was injured after being bitten by a dog.

The victim was walking her own dog in Fastnet Way in Littlehampton, at about 8am on Thursday June 16 when a man walking a large dog – believed to be an Akita or a Chow Chow breed, approached from the other direction. The dog, which was on its lead, initially seemed friendly but then jumped up at the victim, biting her to the head and dragging her to the ground. It’s owner then managed to pull it off the woman and secure it to a fence.

The victim underwent hospital treatment for her injury.

Officers are eager for the owner of the dog to come forward and anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information about the dog is urged to report online, or call 101, quoting serial 745 of 30/06.
