Police are appealing for information after a man suffered a puncture wound as a result of being bitten on the arm by a dog.

Suffolk police said the incident happened at around 9.20am on Saturday on a path behind Suffolk Retail Park, in London Road.

A man was walking his two dogs, a staffie and a border collie, on leads when he was approached by a woman walking her dog off the lead in the opposite direction.

When the man attempted to get in between the dogs, he was bitten on the arm by the woman’s dog.

Her dog was a grey staffie and she had two children, aged around 10 years old, with her.
