Police are looking for the owner of a young black dog after a man was bitten in Seaford on Wednesday (January 2) at about 8.30am.

The victim, a local man, was left with an injury following the incident in the recreation ground on Walmer Road when the dog, which was wearing a red collar and could be called Lucy, ran up to him and bit his leg.

The animal’s owner is described as white, aged around 50, about 5ft 8in tall and of stocky build.

The top of his head was bald with short greying hair on the sides and back.

He was wearing a black donkey-style jacket and had a beige bag over his left shoulder and a ball thrower in his hand.

The black dog weighed between 20-25kg, stood about 18in tall shoulder high, and had a long tail much like a German Shepard’s and a long snout.

A police spokesperson said: “We would like to hear from anyone who recognises the description of the owner and/or the dog and would ask them to contact police on 101, quoting serial 0181 of 02/01. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
