A 34-year-old man from Harrogate suffered serious puncture wounds after he was attacked by an ‘out of control dog’ near Kingsley Road on Saturday.

The male was attacked by the large white dog whilst walking home across the fields adjacent to Kinglsey Road near Harrogate High School at 4pm on Saturday 19.

The ‘dangerously out of control’ dog bit the male on his face, puncturing his left eye nose and lip before being taken to Harrogate Hospital.

He was later discharged after receiving stitches to his injuries. Police are now conducting enquires to determine the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

Police are still trying to trace the owner of the dog and are also appealing for any information from the public who may have witnessed the attack.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact police on 101, select option 2, and ask for PC 46 Brendon Frith.
