Police Investigate after Woman bitten by dog in Annan

Police Scotland officers in Annan want to trace the following described woman who was walking a dog in Hospital Road in the town around 1115 hours on Monday 27 June 2016. At that time a 20 year old woman stopped to speak to the lady with the dog when it bit her on the hand. As a result the woman had to attend Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary to have the injury checked out as the teeth of the dog had punctured her hand. The woman with the dog just walked off after the incident.

The dog is described as a white and tan coloured large Akita type dog. The woman walking it is described as being in her late 20s/early 30s, 5’4″/5’5″ tall, blond hair which was in a bobble, wearing a grey hooded top and dark coloured leggings.

Constable Suzanne Paul at Annan said “we have carried out extensive door to door enquiries in Hospital Road and the surrounding streets looking for witnesses to this incident. We appeal to anyone who recognises the description of this dog or the woman who was walking it to get in touch through 101. We also ask the woman herself to come forward in order to clear this matter up.”
