Ap­peal over dog at­tacks

Rossendale Free Press - - Memory Lane -

PO­LICE have launched an ap­peal in con­nec­tion with two dog at­tacks which hos­pi­talised peo­ple.

A 63-year-old man was walk­ing on Dear­den­gate, Hasling­den when he was at­tacked by a dog on Oc­to­ber 28 last year.

The an­i­mal bit him on the arm, be­fore the man freed him­self and went to hos­pi­tal.

A 20-year-old woman was bit­ten on the arm at a prop­erty in the Black­burn Road area of Hasling­den on De­cem­ber 30 last year.

She was later treated at Royal Pre­ston Hos­pi­tal and needed plas­tic surgery.

Of­fi­cers be­lieve the same dog was in­volved in both at­tacks and want to speak to a man whose pic­ture they have now re­leased.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can contact po­lice on 101 or email 3777@Lancashire. pnn.po­lice.uk quot­ing crime ref­er­ence EF1712456.
