Police have released a picture a man they want to speak to after a 74-year-old woman was bitten by a dog in Welwyn Garden City.

Officers are investigating reports of a dog being out of control in Moneyhole Park off Sylvan Way, Panshanger.

The victim was bitten by an Alsatian dog on the back of her left thigh, before it then bit a 16-year-old girl on the back of her right thigh.

The 16-year-old suffered a cut to her leg while the 74-year-old sustained bruising.

The dog was not on a lead, and following the incident between 7.15pm and 7.30pm on Sunday, June 3, police today (June 26) released a picture in connection with the attack.

A spokeswoman said: “Officers would like to speak to the man pictured as it is believed he may have seen what happened and could have information that is vital to the investigation.”

Anyone with information can contact officers via non-emergency number 101, quoting 41/6307/18 or 41/4124/18.
