Dog attack – A woman was walking her dog on Moorehead Beach, Bermagui about 12pm on Saturday when two other dogs that were off leash approached her and allegedly began attacking her dog. She sustained an injury to her hand trying to separate the dogs and break up the fight.

The owner of the two Staffordshire terriers allegedly responsible for the attacks was located by police and the matter has been referred to the Bega Valley Shire Council. Narooma police urge all dog owners to keep their dogs under control at all times, particularly if they show any aggression toward people or other dogs.

Residential break-and-enter – Sometime between 10am Friday and 11.30am Sunday, unknown persons broke into a residence on Mort Avenue Dalmeny and searched through belongings but nothing was reported stolen.

Dalmeny fire – A spokesman for the NSW Rural Fire Service said a crew was called to a bushfire on Thomson Parade, Dalmeny about 4pm on Wednesday, April 12. He said children were seen leaving the scene and the fire had self-extinguished by the time the RFS crew arrived.

Highway accident – A Subaru Forester was travelling north on the Princes Highway near Quaama when it left the roadway at around 4.15pm on Friday. The 71-year-old female driver failed to negotiate a left-hand bend, crossed the southbound lane, entered the undergrowth along the highway, side-swiping a tree.

Scam warning – The NSW Police Force Fraud and Cybercrime Squad has warned Eurobodalla residents of a cold-call scheme, which tricks victims into downloading malicious software. Victims are asked to download a software program, which then shows a number of errors on the computer, said to be due to being hacked. A request for money to be sent overseas is then made, indicating it will help police in those nations to make arrests. Report scams to Scamwatch on 1300 795 995
