Witness appeal after man injured by dog in Royston

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after an 89-year-old man was injured by a dog on Royston High Street.

At around 1125am last Saturday (February 3), the victim bent down to stroke a dog when it then jumped up and bit his ear.

The owner of the dog immediately assisted by taking the victim to a pharmacy where an ambulance was called but left the scene without giving any details before police arrived.

PC Callum Grindley, who is investigating, said: "I'd like to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident or who has information about it to please get in touch. Please contact me with details by email via [email protected]

Call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/9638/24.
