Appeal launched after 80-year-old woman bitten by dog in Darwen
An 80-year-old woman was bitten by a dog outside a convenience store in Darwen.
Police are looking to speak with the owner of a dog after it bit an elderly lady, 80, outside McColl's convenience store in Railway Road, Darwen.
The owner reportedly left the scene despite members of the public advising him to stay.
The incident occurred at around 2.45pm on Saturday (February 8).
A spokesperson for Lancashire Police said: "I am looking at speaking with the owner of this dog after it has bitten an elderly lady without provocation.
"The owner has left the scene straight after the incident, even though members of the public have pleaded with him to stay.
"I am hoping that a public appeal will provide a name as early efforts have proved unsuccessful."
