POLICE have appealed for witnesses after a pensioner was assaulted and hit with his own walking stick.

At around 9am on October 21, the 69-year-old man was walking his two dogs in Dearne Valley Country Park last month, which is situated off Pontefract Road in Hoyle Mill. 

While walking his dogs on the footpaths next to the ponds near Rotherham Road, it is reported another man approached with a cocker spaniel.

One of the victim's dogs reportedly approached the spaniel, which ran away. The unknown man is then said to have tried to kick the 69-year-old’s dog.

The unknown man allegedly assaulted the victim, grabbing him by the throat and striking him on the head with his own walking stick.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 50s, around 5ft 10in tall, of stocky build. He is described as having short, dark hair that appeared to have hair gel in.

He was reportedly wearing a dark, three-quarter length jacket and spoke with a local accent. The suspect was walking a light brown cocker spaniel dog with a distinctive white stripe down the front of its face and a long tail.

Anyone with information is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 216 of October 21. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Someone's barking up the wrong tree. A 69 year old and a 50 year old. Just shows the education of these animals.

I'm not talking about the dogs
