A woman has been left in pain and shock after she was attacked by an out of control dog in St Albans.
Between 4pm and 4.15pm on January 28, the victim was running with her own dog through the Batchwood forest near Toulmin Drive when a large white dog knocked her down.
The Samoyed or akita type hound, which was on an extendable lead, grabbed and bit her left leg.
Although the shocked victim did not manage to get details from its owner, she saw he was Asian, between 20 and 25-years-old, and of very slim build.
Herts police officers are appealing for information or witnesses to the incident.
