Po­lice hunt at­tempted dog snatcher

Daily Record - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are hunt­ing a man who tried to steal a woman’s dog from her in a ceme­tery.

The at­tacker pushed the vic­tim to the ground be­fore try­ing to take the Boxer in Bo’ness ceme­tery, West Loth­ian where she was walk­ing at about 7.45pm on Wed­nes­day.

The woman, 24, held on to her pet’s lead and the sus­pect fled.

Po­lice are keen to trace the driver of a white Tran­sit van seen in the ceme­tery at about the same time.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Karen Young said: “The vic­tim was left shaken as a re­sult of this in­ci­dent but thank­fully she did not sus­tain se­ri­ous in­juries.”
