A dog walker has reported to police what is being described as a suspicious incident in Credenhill Woods.

The female dog walker has reported the following happening yesterday evening:

“I was walking in Credenhill Woods at about half 6 this evening when we saw three lads in their late teens hiding in trees and staring at us.

“As our dog approached their direction and explored the trees they started running towards him. We called him back and got him on his lead and then they fled back into the woods. Just be careful and vigilant if walking there and your dogs like to explore and roam like ours does.”

The woman reported the incident to the police due to concerns that the group were going to attempt to steal her dog.

Anyone seeing anything suspicious should report their incident to West Mercia Police on 101.
