Officers from Redcar CID are investigating a report of an attempted robbery in which the suspect was apparently bitten on the right forearm by the victim’s dog.
The incident happened yesterday evening (around 745pm on Thursday 7th December) as the young woman walked her dogs near the back of Gisborough Hall.
The male grabbed her arm and demanded she hand over her mobile phone however the dog came to its owner’s defence.
The suspect is a white male, wearing a black shell top or waterproof jacket with the hood up, black gloves. He may have had his face covered.
Officers believe the suspect was in the following areas of the town before and after the incident:
Footpath leading to Prior Pursglove College,
Lawrence Jackson school and the Priory to Whitby Road areas.
Enquiries are ongoing and we would appeal for anyone who has information or who knows of a male with a recent dog bite to his right arm to contact Cleveland Police via the 101 number.
Please quote ref 240408.
