Appeal to trace owners of dog who attacked jogger in Ormskirk

POLICE are renewing their appeal for information to trace the owners of a dog over 17 months after it attacked a jogger in Ormskirk.

The incident happened on Sunday 6th May 2012 around 11am when the dog has bitten the man outside the Aughton Food Stores on Moss Delph Lane.

As a result of the attack the jogger sustained wounds to his chest, wrist, hand and foot which necessitated a five day stay in hospital.

The dog was being walked by a man and a woman and police have reissued CCTV images from the time of the offence in the hope that someone might recognise the owners.

The dog is described as looking like an Alsatian or German shepherd/Belgian Mallinois but was short haired and tan brown in colour, with its face being slightly darker.

The man with the dog is described as being white, aged mid to late 30s, bald, stocky build, 5ft10 and wearing a green coloured coat, possibly a parker jacket. He was in company with a woman with shoulder length, dark brown hair who was wearing a dark coloured parker.

PC James Gielty said: “Despite the passage of time we are still hopeful that somebody might remember the incident or recognise the owners involved. This was a nasty attack which has had a profound impact on the victim.

“Anyone with any information about the dog or owners involved in this incident should contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log reference LC-20120506-0602.”

People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
