Police are on the hunt for a man who is accused of kicking a dog and assaulting two people that were walking it in Norwich.

At around 9pm on Thursday, July 23, a man and a woman were walking a dog in Oak Street, when they became involved in a verbal altercation with the driver of a grey Toyota Avensis.

The incident, which happened close to the junction with St Crispins Road, then saw the male driver of the car assault both people - and kick out at the dog.

The man suffered minor facial injuries in the assault, which has prompted a police appeal.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said it is believed a handful of people were in the area at the time and officers wish to speak with anyone that witnessed the altercation.
