Do you know this man?

Police are looking for a man who killed a dog by deliberately riding at it on a stolen motocross bike in Aldershot, Hampshire.
The dog owner, who did not want to be named, was out walking their German Shepherd Zena on heathland in Aldershot on the 16th of August, when the incident happened. A man riding a stolen KTM EXC off-road motorcycle sped towards the dog Zena, hitting her and throwing her 25ft. Zena suffered multiple injuries as a result of the crash and died of a heart-attack minutes later.

The dog owner from Farnham, Surrey, managed to take a photo of the motorcycle and rider after the incident and noted down the number plate. Police contacted the bike's owner but the motorcycle had been stolen.
The dog's owner said: "I have gone over it in my mind. I know he could see us, he even stopped as though he was trying to intimidate me and then he rode at full speed in our direction. "There was plenty of space for him to swerve or slow down if he wanted - it was no accident. I cannot even imagine what would cause anyone to behave in such a way and I am stunned. I have lost my companion and my friend, she was such a lovely dog."
