Appeal after man reports being bitten by dog in Sleaford
Main article content
We are investigating a report of a dog causing injury in Sleaford, following an allegation a man was bitten.
Officers received a report that a man had been sitting at a table outside the Barge and Bottle in Sleaford when he was bitten on the leg by a Rottweiler, leading to a puncture wound. The dog, which was on its lead and with its owner at the time, was reported to have gone under his table towards a smaller dog which was with the man's family.
The owner denied his dog had bitten the man, and was allegedly verbally abusive when challenged before leaving the venue a short time later.
The incident took place between 5.30pm and 5.40pm on Thursday 24 August.
We are trying to trace the owner of the Rottweiler to take their account of the incident and progress our investigation, and we hope a public appeal might help gather more information.
