Man sentenced After Dog Attack

A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to two months in a young offenders institution after a young boy was attacked by a dog in Norwich.

Nathan Atkins, of Goldsmith Street, appeared at the city's crown court on, Wednesday 21 September, for sentencing after pleading guilty to being in charge of a dog and allowing it to be dangerously out of control in a public place and cause injury.

The charge related to an incident which happened on Sunday 3 July when police were called to Goldsmith Street shortly before 3pm following reports a child had been attacked by a dog in the street.

Officers arrived on scene to find a 10-year-old with serious injuries to his right arm and the boy was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

Police seized a bull dog at the scene and Atkins, who didn't own the dog but was looking after it at the time of the incident, was arrested and subsequently charged.
