WEST Mercia Police are appealing foe witnesses after two dogs and their owner were injured after a dog attack.

At around 6am on Thursday 17 February a couple were walking their two Lurcher dogs in the cemetery on Plymouth Road in Redditch when they and one of their dogs were attacked by two unaccompanied Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

The Staffordshire Bull Terriers, one black and one tan/white, were not on leads.

The attack on the Lurcher has sadly led to significant injuries and injuries also to one of the owners of the Lurchers.

The owner of the Staffordshire Bull Terriers reportedly arrived a short while after the attack and is a white man, around 30 years old, stocky build, short light coloured hair and was wearing a tan coat.

However, he has then left the scene with both Staffordshire Bull Terriers before exchanging any details.

Witnesses are to contact the police via their website quoting incident number 57i of 17 February.

Alternatively, if you have information but don’t feel comfortable speaking to police, you can speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers.

It is 100% anonymous, they never ask your name and they cannot trace your call or IP address. You can contact them online or by calling 0800 555 111.
