A woman has been bitten on the arm and hip by an American bull-terrier in Milton Keynes.
The victim, a 46-year-old woman, was walking in the area of Tinkers Bridge at about 9am on Saturday (11/7).
She stopped to talk to a man who was walking a dog, a white American bull terrier bitch with brown patches.
The man’s dog approached the victim, who stroked its head.
Suddenly the dog bit the victim’s forearm and hip, which caused bruising and cuts that needed medical attention at hospital.
The man is white, about 6ft, slim, with dark Hair and clean shaven. He spoke with a local accent.
He 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.
