Two dog attacks took place in Rustington within seven days - near the same park.

The first took place at 8.30am on Sunday, August 17, in Jubilee Avenue recreation ground, where a woman was bitten on her lower leg by an Alsatian.

Then, last Saturday, a man was also bitten on the lower leg near the same recreation ground at about 6.45pm.

Police are trying to trace the dog walker described as a white man in his 50s.

They believe both incidents involved the same man walking two Alsatian dogs on flexi leads.

Anyone with information should contact police by emailing or phone 101 quoting serial 1337 of 23/08.
