Appeal after dog attack


Police need to speak to a man who was out walking two Staffordshire terrier-type dogs following an incident in woodland off Speedwell Road in Ipswich.

Officers were contacted around 8.15pm on Thursday 5 May about an incident that had happened around 8.15am that morning.

A man in his 80s was walking his dog in the woodland between Speedwell Road and Wallers Grove when he saw a man picking bluebells who appeared to have two Staffordshire terrier-type dogs off the lead. As he was walking away from where the man was the two animals ran up to his dog and started attacking it.

The man with the Staffie-type dogs approached and helped the man in his 80s get the two dogs off his pet. The injured dog was rushed to the vets and had to have an operation and his owner was left shaken and distressed by what happened.

Officers need to speak to the man with the Staffordshire-type dogs, who is described as white and possibly in his 30s.

Police are asking him or anyone with information about the incident to call PC Beckwith at Suffolk Police by dialling 101 and quoting CAD number 397 of May 5.
