Nuneaton Police appeal over dog attack

PLEASE NOTE CORRECTION BELOW IN BOLD. The boy was not taken to hospital by ambulance as previously stated.

Nuneaton police are investigating a report of a dog attacking a child.

It is reported that the dog, which has been described as possibly being an American Bulldog, attacked and injured an eight-year-old boy at around 6pm on Sunday 22 April in The Green Bear pub, Church Road, Nuneaton.

The boy suffered injuries to his eye that required hospital treatment.

PC Clayton Kelley said: "We're keen to hear from anyone who can help us to identify the owners of the dog.

"We believe the owners, a man and a woman, went into the pub at around 4pm and were in there for around an hour and a half before the incident happened.

"They left immediately after the incident without speaking to anyone.

"We're hoping that someone else in the pub will have recognised them and be able to help us identify them."

Anyone with information that could help locate the dog and its owners, are asked to call Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting incident reference number 311 of 22 April 2018.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
