A man who intervened when he saw a dog being kicked by its owner in Bristol was subjected to an unprovoked assault.
The man was walking with his girlfriend along Fulford Road in Hartcliffe, near the junction with Hawkfield Road, at about 2.30pm on Monday, when he saw a man kicking and choking a dog.
He challenged the man and asked him to stop, but the offender punched him in the face. He attended hospital and was found to have suffered a broken jaw.
The offender is described as white, about 17 years old, 6ft tall, of slim build with short blond hair.
He was wearing a grey hooded tracksuit top and trousers and a grey Nike t-shirt with the slogan ‘Just Do It’ in large letters across the chest.
The dog resembled a black greyhound and was quite young. It didn’t have a collar on but had a piece of black rope around its neck.
