Woman left with bruises and a mark after dog incident in Glemsford

Police are appealing for witnesses following an incident involving a dog in Glemsford near Long Melford.

The incident occurred at around 6.20am on Saturday 18 April within recreation ground near the library and skate park off Hunts Hill.

The victim – a woman aged in her 40s – was jogging when a black and white Border Collie breed dog approached her and persistently nipped her on her calves, leaving a bruise and a mark on her calf muscle.
