A woman is recovering after being attacked by a dog walker in Huddersfield.

The assault took place on 3 March on Beech Avenue in Golcar. The victim, a 48-year-old woman, was walking her dog when a she was attacked by another female dog walker following an incident with their dogs.

The victim was left with injuries that required hospital treatment. The attack was stopped by two teenagers who saw what was happening. Police are now wanting to find the speak to the teenagers, who were described as white and 17-20-years-old.

The suspect was described as female, of afro-caribbean ethnicity, 50-55-years-old, 5ft 4ins tall and of medium to stocky build.

She had a short black afro hair style and was wearing a dark coloured waist length jacket and a long grey skirt. The suspect also had a Jamaican like accent.

This was a nasty incident and we would very much like to trace the two teenagers who saw what happened and intervened as we need to speak to them as witnesses.

I would ask them to come forwards and would also appeal to anyone who knows the identity of the victim’s attacker to contact us.
