The girl was outside shops with her older sister in Findon Road, at around 6.30pm on Thursday (April 9) when the dog bit her, causing a single puncture wound to her upper lip. She was treated at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.

The dog has been described as a Staffy-type that was off the lead with two similar dogs – two were black and one was white.

They were with a man described as white, in his 50s, with bright purple hair and a brown moustache.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or recognises the description of the owner and his dogs is asked to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 1287 of 09/04.
