Woman and her pet attacked by a dog in Sinfin

Posted on 4th July 2017

A woman has suffered hand and wrist injuries and her dog needed veterinary treatment after they were attacked by a dog in Sinfin.

At around 1.30pm on Thursday, June 15, a 63-year-old woman was walking her two dogs in Sinfin Moor Park, Sinfin Lane.

She sat on a bench and noticed a man was walking a brown and black brindle Staffordshire bull terrier off the lead. She said the dog ran over to one of her pets and picked it up in its mouth.

The man came over to get his dog and the woman tried to intervene but the dog bit her, causing bruising to her wrist and breaking her finger.

Her dog suffered several puncture wounds to his body and legs.

We’re trying to trace the owner of the dog involved, who did not leave any details with the victim. He walked off toward the Woodbine Road exit.

He is described as mixed race, slim, 6ft tall and with short black curly hair. He wore a cream top and black trousers.
