Nom, nom, nom, dog bites crim who attacked his owner

Some creepy little Indian half-man has had his arms gnawed on by a dog protecting its owner.

It seems it is a bit hard to concentrate on an indecent assault while a dog is chewing through your arm.

Police are looking for an Indian man with bite marks on his arm after a dog helped save his owner during an indecent assault.

The 20-year-old woman was attacked in the car park of the Countdown supermarket on Bridge St, Hamilton on Wednesday, detective sergeant Matt Cranshaw said.

She was walking to her car in the centre of the car park at approximately 8pm when the male offender grabbed her from behind as she opened the driver’s side door, he said.

“The dog was in the back on the car and growled…and then he grabbed the guy’s arm, and then she kicked him [the offender] in the groin.

“Whether to say the dog saved the day, who knows – but definitely the combined actions of the dog and the lady did the job.”

The dog let go of the man’s right arm, and the offender fled the scene. He was described as Indian in appearance, of short stature, aged in his mid 30s to early 40s.

This is what the Indian flavoured chew toy looks like if you can help Police:

This evening police released several images of the man, taken from camera footage.

Police would like to speak to anyone who believes they can identify the man from the pictures, or who knows of someone matching the description with a bite mark on their right forearm and showing signs of discomfort as a result of being kicked in the groin, Cranshaw said.

“This was an attack with sexual overtones and is of concern to us.”

Members of the public with information can contact Cranshaw by calling (07) 858 6200 or anonymously through the Crimestoppers phone line 0800 555 111.
