Woman 'punched and kicked' in vicious attack after asking for dog to be put on a lead

A woman was 'punched and kicked' during a shocking attack - after she asked for a dog to be put on a lead.

The scene unfolded on Monday in Bristol, and was caught on video by another person. Local police have said they have spoken to the woman who was attacked and have identified two people they want to speak to about what happened.

The victim was walking her dog in fields off Severus St between the River Avon and the 'Chocolate Quarter' in Keynsham at around 1.10pm, as Bristol Live reports. Police said she was punched and kicked by another woman after she asked her to keep her German Shepherd dog on its lead. A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset police said they had seen the video of the incident posted online, and were dealing with it.
