Spruce Grove RCMP are investigating after a woman was punched in the face by a fellow dog-walker at the off-leash Marlboro Dog Park.

Police say a woman was in the off-leash area on Friday afternoon  when another dog owner started yelling at her for letting her pet play with his animal's toy.

The man then allegedly kicked her dog before yelling in her face, swearing at her and trying to intimidate her.

According to RCMP, “he ended up punching her in the face, and then running away with his dogs.”

The man’s girlfriend, who was with him, apologized to the victim before leaving as well.

RCMP say the suspect is about 6’2” tall, very muscular with a shaved head. He is thought to be in his mid- to late-30s and was wearing blue jeans and a sweater.

His girlfriend has bleached blond hair, is about 5’2” tall and was wearing a grey cardigan and tank top.

Police are asking anyone with information about the pair, or who might have seen the assault, call to  RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
