POLICE are appealing for witnesses with regards to an assault near the Kerria Centre in Tamworth on Friday, July 11.
The incident happened at around 11pm where two women (aged in their 30s) were walking their Staffordshire bull terrier near the cycle path that leads from Amington industrial estate towards the Kerria.
They saw another Staffordshire bull terrier cross-breed off the lead and asked the owner if he could put the dog on a lead.
Three men came out of the teen shelter, walking towards the two women. The cross-breed light brown/tan-coloured Staffordshire bull terrier then attacked the women’s dog.
As the women tried to separate the dogs one of the males started to punch their dog. A further altercation took place resulting in one of the women being assaulted and landing on the floor.
The three men have been described as all being intoxicated.
One is described as a white male, aged in his 20’s, 5’7″ tall, slim build, short mousey-brown hair, wearing a plain white t-shirt and blue jogging bottoms with a motif at the top of one leg.
Another of the males has been described as approximately 5’10” tall and of stocky build, short shaved hair and wearing a bright orange t-shirt and khaki/green shorts.
The other male is described as 5’7″ tall, slim build aged in his 20’s, brown hair and wearing a white t-shirt and grey jogging bottoms.
