October 21, 2014, 4:22 pm
Surrey Police is appealing for help in tracing a lilac-coloured rare puppy worth £16,000 that was stolen in Tadworth.
The British Bulldog puppy was taken from a home at around 8pm on Saturday 18 October by a man who was at the address with the intention of buying it.
However after being given the eight-week old puppy to hold he ran out of the house and assaulted a woman, a relative of the dog breeder, on his way to getting in a car outside.
In driving away the car reversed nearly running over another relative of the dog breeder.
The man who took the dog is described as black, 5ft 10inches, of medium build, with short black afro style hair, and had one of his top teeth missing.
He was wearing a black Lecoste jumper, black jeans and black Nike Air trainers.
The man driving the car is described as white, with a pointy nose and wearing a black cap.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Eloise Lock said: “This was a nasty incident which has left the dog breeder and her family distressed.
“The puppy is extremely distinguishable and rare because of its colour. We are hoping because of that the public can help us reunite it with the owner.
“Anyone who may have been offered the puppy or knows anything about where it might have been sold is urged to get in touch with us by calling 101, quoting the reference number 45140087810.”
