A jogger was bitten in the mouth by a dangerously out of control dog while running in Verulamium Park.
The attack occurred on Thursday, July 24 at around 8.30am, when the victim, a 38 year old man, was jogging through the St Albans park.
A man approached him with two dogs, one of which jumped up causing the victim to fall to the floor. The dog bit him on the mouth, causing cuts which required stitching.
The man with the dogs, who left without leaving his details, is described as white, aged about 50 and of a medium build. He had grey hair and stubble on his face and was smoking.
The dogs are described as being similar to Tibetan mastiffs.
