Appeal after man bitten by dog in Weston-super-Mare – Avon and Somerset Constabulary

We’re appealing for the public’s help to trace the owner of a dog which bit a 56-year-old man in Weston-super-Mare.

At about 10.30am on Wednesday 16 July, the victim was returning to his car in Melrose car-park on the sea front, when he heard something behind him.

He turned around and saw a dark bull terrier-type dog which ran up to him and bit him. The dog wouldn’t let go until the victim was able to kick out.

As a result of the attack, the victim suffered puncture wounds which required medical attention.

Investigating officer PC Phill Perkins said: “The dog is described as dark coloured with a white patch on the right side of its face. It was about two-and-a-half feet tall and was stocky in appearance.

“After biting the victim, the dog ran off through a gap in the wall into Park Place.

“We are trying to identify the owner of this dog and would appeal to anyone who saw the incident or has any information to call us.”
