A woman was 'bit on the face' by a 'dangerous' dog she'd asked to pet, resulting in a serious face injury. Police have now released a CCTV image of a man officers wish to speak to following the incident at Dudley Port railway station.

The victim was allegedly approached by a man with two dogs at around 2pm on June 10. With the permission of the owner, she stroked one of the dogs.

But the pet then jumped and bit her, causing a serious face injury. The owner then left the station.
