Wollaton: Image released after woman bitten by Rottweiler

Police are appealing for information after a woman was bitten by a dog in Wollaton.

The victim was walking her dog in Lambourne Drive, Wollaton when she was approached by a Rottweiler that was off its lead.

The animal became aggressive and attacked the smaller dog, with the woman picking her pet up to try and protect it from harm.

The victim sustained minor injuries after being bitten on the hand by the Rottweiler.

The Rottweiler’s owner arrived at the scene from the direction of Reynold Drive, grabbed his dog and walked away.

The incident took place at around 12:20 pm on Sunday 12 November 2023.

Police are now trying to trace the owner and have released an image of someone they’d like to speak to as part of their investigation.

PC Richard Rafferty, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This attack was a very traumatic experience for the victim, who was trying to protect her dog from harm.

“Unfortunately, the victim sustained injuries during this incident, while her own much smaller dog was thankfully unharmed.

“The suspected owner of the Rottweiler irresponsibly left the scene without trying to help the woman and we are now in the process of trying to locate him.

“We have released an image of someone we believe may be able to help us with our inquiries and we’d urge them or anyone who recognises them to get in touch with us.

“Anyone with any information can report it the police on 101, quoting incident 271 of 12 November 2023, or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
