A man was left seriously ill in hospital after being dragged along the ground by a car in Farcet when someone allegedly attempted to steal his dog.
The incident happened at 7pm on Wednesday at the junction of Church Walk and Marshall’s Way.
A police spokesman said: “It is believed one of the suspects tried to take a dog belonging to the aggrieved who has then been dragged a short distance by a car driven by a second suspect.
“The victim, a 32-year-old man from Longthorpe, was taken to Peterborough City Hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
“A 32-year-old woman from Farcet was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and has been bailed to return to Thorpe Wood Police Station on August 5.
“The man, described as wearing an animal onesie is outstanding.”
It is not known what breed of dog the victim had, but it was not stolen.
