POLICE on the Isle of Wight are seeking witnesses to a dangerous dog attack in Seaview on Sunday.
The victim, Alicia Penney, said she had been walking along Springvale Road that afternoon when a bulldog bit her knee and that it was unprovoked.
She discovered how extensive the bruising was on her leg when she got home and reported the attack to the police, who are investigating the incident.
On Facebook, she posted pictures of her injuries and said: "Totally out of the blue a bulldog went for my knee. I was in shock and disbelief.
"The reply from the owners was simply 'sorry, I think he was a bit scared' and walked off.
"Luckily this didn't happen to one of my nieces because the outcome could've been far, far worse."
She added the reason for her posting the photos on social media were to make people more aware unprovoked dog attacks can happen to anyone and to report them to the police.
The attack comes just weeks after a puppy, Ozzy, was mauled by another dog, owned by a couple from the mainland, on Seaview beach.
If anyone saw the dog attack, please contact the police on 101, quoting the crime reference 44170142018.
