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.
Police have confirmed that a man and a teenage boy have died after an incident at West Meadows in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year, an all-time record.
