A heroic dog has saved its owner from a would-be attacker who chased her  shouting ‘do you fancy a quickie?’

The 20-year-old woman’s black Labrador intervened after she fell in Flixton, Greater Manchester as she was trying to escape from the assailant who had jumped out from behind some bushes before pursuing her. Luckily, her dog’s growls and barks were enough to scare him off and he eventually ran away.

Detective Constable Andrew Warren of Greater Manchester Police said: 

The victim has sustained some minor injuries, but was shaken by the experience. This has been recorded as a common assault, but there was a very real possibility that this could have been more serious had her dog not come to her defence.

The police have said that crimes like this are rare and they do not think the assault is, ‘part of a wider threat to the public.’ However, they are appealing to people who were in the area at the time, or who believe they saw anything that may assist their investigation to contact them.

The would-be sex-attacker is described as around 6ft tall, with a large or muscular build, between 20 and 30 years old and spoke with a Salford accent. He was wearing a black jacket with pale fur trim around the hood, black trousers and black Nike trainers.

Anyone with information on the assault, which happened on Ambleside Road, Flixton, between 4pm and 4:30 on the 12 December, can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
