Watch dog walker attacked with bottle in vicious Cowes assault

A video of a man being hit with a bottle and further assaulted has emerged. 

The 41-year-old man was walking his dog in Cowes on Thursday (July 26) when he was attacked by a male at around 11.30pm.

The Bath Road incident appears to show a young male swing a bottle at the dog walker before punching, mounting, and further raining down blows on the victim’s head.

The attacker is then pulled away by a female and the video appears to show another woman take the victim’s shoe.

The victim then calls for the return of his shoe before the video ends.

A photo of the dog walker’s injuries has been circulating Isle of Wight Facebook groups attached to an appeal for information to find the attackers.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: “We were called to reports on July 26 at 11.32pm in Bath Road, Cowes.

“A 41-year-old male had been assaulted by a teenage boy causing lacerations to his head – no arrests and enquiries remain ongoing.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting crime reference number 44180283639.
