A WOMAN was attacked while walking her dog near Arrow Valley Country Park.
The victim, who is in her 40s, was walking along Wild Goose Lane in Matchborough about 2.30pm on Wednesday, October 10 when a man lunged at her from the under growth and grabbed her arm.
Seeing its owner in trouble her dog, which was off the lead, bit the man on his left arm. The woman then threatened to set her dog on him, so the man ran off down the path.
The attacker was described as white, in his late 20s, with very short dark hair and was wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans and trainers.
PC Stephen Allen said: "Thankfully the woman and her dog were not hurt and were able to scare the offender off.
"It is important we trace this man so if you have any idea who he is or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area during the day then please let us know.
"If anyone is aware of a man matching this description who has recently injured his arm we would urge them to call us as it is possible this could be the man we are looking for."
Anyone with any information should call PC Allen at Redditch Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident reference 222-N-171012, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
