Police are hunting for the owner of a "Staffy-type" dog after a four-year-old girl was bitten in the face in Brighton.
The girl was outside shops with her sister at around 6.30pm on 9 April when the dog bit her and caused a single puncture wound to her upper lip.
She was treated at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.
The dog is described as a Staffy-type that was off the lead with two similar dogs, two black and one white.
They were with a man described as white, in his 50s, with bright purple hair and a brown moustache.
In March a 23-year-old man was charged under the dangerous dogs act after a 64-year-old woman in Cardiff died when she was attacked by a dog.
Police have asked anyone who witnessed the incident or recognises the description of the owner or the dogs to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial 1287 of 09/04Reuse content
