Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

Police are appealing for public assistance following an alleged incident of animal cruelty at Kemps Creek in Sydney's south-west.

About 9.40am yesterday (Saturday 7 January 2012), a female Jack Russell/Cavalier dog ran from its home in Herbert Street and onto the nature strip.

The dog then barked at a pedestrian, and a male allegedly picked up a stick or other implement and struck the dog on the head.

The man ran from the scene and was later confronted by the dog's owner in Fifteenth Avenue, before again running away.

Police were contacted and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident.

The dog was taken to a nearby animal shelter and is expected to undergo surgery for a suspected broken jaw and a number of broken teeth.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the alleged incident to come forward. In particular, they would like to speak to a male pedestrian seen in the vicinity of Herbert Street and Fifteenth Avenue.

He's been described to investigators as being aged 16-17 old, of Mediterranean / Middle Eastern appearance, of muscular build, and with dark hair. The male was last seen wearing a white shirt, and blue shorts with a yellow stripe.

Anyone with information about the alleged incident, or the identity or current whereabouts of a man who may be able to assist with inquiries, is asked to contact Green Valley Police Station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
