AN 11-year-old boy was attacked twice by a dog in Theale at the weekend.

The boy was playing in Theale Skate Park when the dog, believed to be a white and light brown German Shepherd, ran up to him and bit him on the leg.  

The boy ran off and was then bitten a second time before the dog returned to its owner, described as a woman in her forties wearing a hat and a red knee-length coat.

Anyone with information should contact PC Teresa Miller, from Newbury police station, via the Thames Valley Police 24-hour enquiry line 101.

Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
