Alert message sent 15/02/2021 14:14:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We’re appealing for witnesses after a man was bitten by a dog in Stenson Fields, early last Tuesday morning.

A 36-year-old man was walking his dog on the green close to Glenmore Drive and Witton Court, at around 6.20am on 9 February when he came across another man walking a larger dog.

The larger dog pulled towards the victim’s dog and began fighting with it, before biting the 36-year-old on the leg. It is understood that the larger dog’s owner then walked away.

The victim was taken to hospital and was treated for a wound on his leg which required stitches.

Did you witness the incident or do you have private CCTV installed nearby, which may have captured it?

If you have any information which may help officers with their enquiries, please contact PC Ian Morley quoting reference number 21*80352.
