Police in Doncaster are asking for your help to identify this woman in connection with an investigation into a dog bite incident earlier this month.

At around midday on Saturday 3 September, it is reported that a 25-year-old woman was walking her dog along Hall Flat Lane in Balby, when another dog – believed to be a German Shepherd-type breed – ran towards them from the other side of the road.

The German Shepherd-type dog is then believed to have bitten the victim’s dog numerous times, causing serious injuries that have required vet treatment.

The 25-year-old was also bitten by the dog when she tried to intervene and suffered an injury to her hand that required hospital treatment.

Officers are now keen to identify the woman pictured and are asking her, or anyone who recognises her, to get in touch as she may be able to assist with enquiries.
