Police have appealed for witnesses after a nasty incident in which a man’s leg was broken in two places after he challenged two individuals over the mistreatment of a dog in a park in Bristol.
Avon and Somerset Police are hoping to hear from anyone with footage of the attack, which left the victim hospitalised.
A spokesman said: “On Thursday 18 May at around 2.45pm, a man challenged two unknown men who were mistreating their dog in St George Park.
“The suspects tripped over the man, causing serious injury to his leg, and left him on the floor.
“The victim sustained two fractures in his leg and was taken to hospital.”
He has since been discharged to recover at home, the spokesman said.
He added: “The two suspects are described as black, both with short, black braids, and had a boxer/Staffordshire bull terrier-type dog that had a red/brown coat.
“Officers are looking for anyone who may have seen the incident, or have any CCTV, doorbell or dashcam footage.”
Anyone who thinks they can help is being asked to contact 101, quoting reference 5223115864.
