A one-year-old child has been bitten on the face by a dog in Swindon.
A mother was playing with her child on Buckhurst Field, Walcot, at around 5pm on 18 October when the attack took place.
A black lurcher-type dog ran up to them and bit the one-year-old, causing a facial injury.
When the woman tried to speak to the owner about it, he was aggressive towards her.
The dog then ran off – and is believed to have bitten another dog in the vicinity.
Wiltshire Police want to trace the owner of the dog, which is believed to be named Spike.
The owner is described as being aged in his mid-30s, tall, of heavy build with brown hair and missing two front teeth.
If you were in the area at the time or have information that could help with the investigation, please call 101 quoting reference number 54230110628.
