Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a man and his dog were injured during an assault in Wendover.
The victim, a 68-year-old man, was walking his dog in Grenville Avenue between the junctions of Halton Lane and Carrington Crescent at about 6.30pm on Thursday (9/3).
As the victim approached Halton Lane, he noticed two men acting suspiciously.
One of the men approached the victim and squirted a liquid from a container into the victim’s eyes.
The two men then got into a dark coloured Volkswagen Golf which was driven away towards Halton Lane.
The offenders were both wearing dark clothing and are described as about 6ft and 5ft 8ins, respectively.
The liquid caused burns and irritation to both the victim and his dog. The man had to attend hospital and the dog received emergency veterinary treatment.
It is yet to be established what the liquid is, but it is described as smelling like ammonia.
Investigating officer, Police Constable Callum Mustion said: “I am appealing to any witnesses or anyone with information to contact me as soon as possible.
“You can leave any information you have via our website or call 101, quoting the investigation number 43230106863.”
