A man has been bitten on his arm and leg after being attacked by a dog on Portland.

The incident happened around 4.45pm on Sunday (30th November) when the 20-year-old local man was pushing his bike near the steps on High Street at the end of Mallams.

The dog, described as a black and white border collie, was being walked by a girl aged between 14 and 16, who had brown shoulder length hair and was wearing a green high visibility horse riding style jacket.

When they were level the dog jumped up at the victim and went to bite his arm which left a small scratch on his arm. The dog then bit the man's thigh leaving a larger scratch and bite mark.

Police Constable Neil Fitch, of Weymouth and Portland police, said: "The girl stopped and asked the victim whether he was all right but he was in shock and didn't really answer. The girl then walked off toward the Indian takeaway.

"I am quite sure that the dog owners are local to the Underhill area of Portland. They are not in any trouble but I would like to speak with them as part of my investigation.

"I would ask them to come forward and call Dorset Police."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 30:325.
