Police are appealing for help after a woman and her dog were attacked by a dog on the loose in Coventry.
The woman in her 50s was walking home along Lake View Road at around 3.00pm on Saturday 5 April when a loose mastiff-type dog attacked her spaniel.
When she tried to intervene to protect her pet she was bitten on the arm. Police say a man did come to retrieve the loose dog, but no details were exchanged before he left.
The woman has been left very distressed by the incident, and the dog was badly injured.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact West Midlands Police on the 101 number, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
