POLICE are seeking information about a dog attack at ASDA in Gloucester.

The incident took place outside the Bruton Way store at 5.30am on Tuesday, January 6.

The dog is alleged to have bitten a man, unprovoked, as he walked past, while the dog was tied up at the trolley shelter.

He received two bites to his lower right thigh which were treated in hospital.

Although on a lead, the dog appeared to be unsupervised.

Even though the victim remonstrated with the apparent owner in the store, he did not show any concern.

The dog is described as being slightly bigger than a Staffie, light brown in colour, with a slick coat and wearing a collar and lead.

The suspected owner is described as white, late 40s, average build, 5’ 3” inches tall, short greying hair, wearing a heavy ‘high vis’ coat.

PC Kelly Akers, investigating the incident, said: “This was a nasty dog attack and the victim had to attend hospital for treatment. It is always possible the dog will bite someone else so it is important we identify it and talk to the owner.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they know the dog or the owner to contact the police as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting crime number 0386/15 and incident number 46 of January 6.
