Witness appeal after Chichester dog attack

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was bitten by a Border Collie dog in Newlands Lane, Chichester.

The incident happened around 4pm on 21 November. The victim was working in fields off Newlands Lane close to the bridge over the old railway line in Centurian Way when the black and white dog ran up to him and bit him on his left calf through his wellington boot and clothing causing a puncture wound.

The victim tried to shake the dog off but it only let go when the apparent owner approached and called it off.

The woman owner then walked off under the bridge. She is described as white, aged between 40 and 50 and 5’ 7”.

Anyone with any information about the dog and its owner is asked to contact police on 101 quoting serial 1105 of 21/11 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk
