A man has suffered “puncture mark” injuries on one of his legs after being bitten by an off-lead dog at a football ground near Ely.
Police are trying to locate the dog’s owner following the incident at the Newmarket Town Football Club ground on Saturday, September 26.
The man, in his 30s, was walking along the field at Cricket Field Road at around 5.45pm when a small dark-coloured dog ran over and bit him on the leg.
The dog was off the lead at the time and no owner appeared to be nearby.
PC Rebecca Neville said: “This was a scary experience for the victim who was alone but thankfully managed to walk to a friend’s house nearby.
