Police appeal for information after dog attack in Oxhey Park
Witnesses are being urged to come forward with information about a dog attack in Oxhey Park last week.
At around 1pm on Thursday, February 21, a woman was walking her Jack Russell terrier when another dog, described as similar in appearance to an American bulldog, ran from its owner and attacked the woman and Jack Russell.
The incident happened in Oxhey Park, Eastbury Road, and the offending dog is described as being tan and white in colour with pink markings on its face.
The description of the owners, who did not stop at the scene, is a man and a woman in their late teens to early 20s.
The man had cropped dark hair and the woman had dark red/brown hair which was worn in a ponytail. She was wearing a long dark coat which had a hood, possibly with a fur trim.
PC Chloe Taylor, said: "Two people stopped to help the woman and took her and her dog to the vets. As yet we haven’t spoken with these people and I am keen to trace them. If this was you please contact me.
"I would also like to appeal to anyone who saw what happened or who can offer any assistance in identifying the two people described to contact police."
Anyone with information contact Herts Police on 101 quoting crime reference number C1/13/932. Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
