Appeal for witnesses after woman is injured in dog attack at park in Brentwood

Police are appealing for information following a report of a dog being allowed to be dangerously out of control and injuring someone in Brentwood.

At around 1.20pm on Friday, January 15 at Merrymeade Park, a woman and her son were walking their black cocker spaniel dog when it was attacked by a brown and white pointer-type dog that was off its lead.

The woman was injured when she tried to separate the dogs.

The cocker spaniel required treatment for an ear injury and the dog owner suffered a puncture wound to the hand.

The pointer may have been called Louie and was wearing a multi-coloured woven collar.

The pointer’s owner was present nearby but left the area soon after.

He was described to us as a white man, aged around 45-years-old, 5ft 5ins tall and wearing a light blue puffa or bomber-style jacket and a beanie hat.

It is believed that a family were also in the park at the same time and may have witnessed the attack.

If you witnessed the incident or have any information about the dog and its owner, please call 101 quoting crime reference number 42/8145/21.

You can also report information via the digital 101 service at: or you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
