A man who indecently exposed himself to a woman ended up being bitten by her dog.
The victim, aged in her 60s, was walking her pet in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, when she was approached by the flasher.
A police spokesman said the man exposed himself and the terrier growled. It then bit him on the upper right arm.
Sgt Ian Dowling, of North Cotswolds police, said the dog seemed "to have acted instinctively".
The incident happened near Dunstall Flats at about 1930 BST on Thursday.
The offender is described as slim, about 5ft 2ins tall and with "large, bluey-brown" eyes.
The victim said he was wearing navy blue tracksuit bottoms, a light blue top and a black hat.
Sgt Dowling said: "This was clearly an upsetting incident for the woman and her dog.
"The animal seems to have acted instinctively and was not urged to attack the offender.
"Naturally because of the nature of the incident, we are keen to hear about anyone seen with a dog bite on his right arm in the last 24 hours."
