Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was bitten by a dog.
The attack happened in Tinkers Bridge, Milton Keynes, at around 9am on Saturday morning (June 11).
The woman, 46, was out walking when she stopped to talk to a man walking his dog, a white American bull terrier bitch with brown patches.
The dog approached the woman, who stroked its head but the pet suddenly bit the victim’s forearm and hip, causing bruising and cuts that needed medical attention at hospital.
The incident is being investigated under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.
The man is white, about 6ft, slim, with dark Hair and clean shaven. He spoke with a local accent and was wearing a long sleeved white top and blue jeans.
Investigating officer, PC Amanda Hall of the neighbourhood team at Stantonbury and Bradwell Parish, said: “If you witnessed the incident, recognise the description of the man and his dog, or have any other information please call Thames Valley Police via 101.
