A dog walker needed medical treatment after being by someone else’s Shih Tzu while in Chantry Park.

The attack happened at around 8pm on Friday June 15.

The male dog walker had his pet bitten by the golden brown-coloured Shih Tzu dog, or similar breed, before the animal then bit his leg.

His skin was broken with the bite.

The other dog walker was a white woman, aged in her 30s, around 5ft 5ins tall, with long dark hair. She was also walking a larger white poodle-type of dog.

Anyone with information about the incident, or who believes they may know the dog owner, should call the South Neighbourhood Support Team at Suffolk Constabulary on 101, quoting reference 37/39402/16.
