Police have made arrests in Suffolk and Essex during the child abuse investigation

A man and his dog have been bitten during an incident in Alexandra Park.

At around 1pm on July 2 the man and his dog were near the park entrance when he heard another man shouting.

The victim turned to see three Staffordshire bull terrier-type dogs run past him and attack his dog.

One dog was a sandy brown colour and the other two were both black and white.

The victim tried to pick up his dog and as he did he was bitten on the hand. The victim’s dog sustained an eight-inch wound to the neck.

The owner of the three dogs is described as a white man, with dark coloured hair, aged in his early 20s and slim. He was wearing dark coloured trousers and top.

He was with a woman aged in her early twenties and a male teenager who was described as being approximately 16-years-old.

Anyone with information relating to this crime should contact Pc Lee Andrews-Pearce on 101.

  • Waspie's wife..Miguel100..It's not necessary to muzzle all dogs. Mine would not require a muzzle. I do see responsible owners muzzle if needed, but if they are on a lead and under control, I can choose to cross to the other side of the road if I have doubts about the dog.....

  • Waspie's wife..I agree all dogs should be on leads at all times in public areas. You can get extendable ones.I no longer go to my local park, got fed up with dogs off leads worrying mine and I know of someone else whose dog was attacked by an off the lead dog.

  • Lets wait for the "dog brigade" to jump on this and defend the breedowner etc. ALL dogs should be kept on a lead at ALL times whilst in public areas, until the council makes designated dog walkingpooping areas in parks. This would kill two birds with one stone, no people getting bitten and no children's play areas getting pooped in #simples

  • As much as I think dogs should be able to run free we have to have them on leads now, too many oiks have dogs that are as uncivilised as they are and will be a danger to other dogs, children etc, and laws are no good unless policed, there is a law about biting now but who is watching?
