A police appeal has gone out after a dog walker was punched in Plymouth.

The incident was reported to have taken place in St Levan Park on Thursday 26th September at around 7.45pm.

It was reported that the victim, a man in his 40s, was walking his dog when it became involved in a fight with another dog. 

The victim split the dogs up and was punched by the owner of the other dog, causing a split lip.

The suspect is described as white man, in his late 20s early or 30s and of heavy build. He is believed to have short brown hair and was wearing a black jacket and jeans.
