Alert message sent 12/02/2020 08:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Our Long Eaton Safer Neighbourhood Team are appealing for information after an 86-year-old man was attacked by two dogs.

The incident happened at around 11am on Monday, 3 February when the man was walking on Meadow Lane, Long Eaton when he was attacked by two German Shepard type dogs.

He has received two bite marks as a result of the attack. We have shown a picture of one of the deep bites on his arm, however have had to cover the extent of the bite as we felt it too gory to publish.

The incident is being investigated by PCSO Matt Boyer, from the team, who said: “The victim did not see where the dogs came from or where they went.

“One of the bites to his arm is particularly nasty and will require skin grafting, he has been left very shaken after the attack.

“I would therefore urge anyone who knows anything about the incident or perhaps knows who owns these two dogs to make contact with me.”

If you have any information please make contact with Matt using any of the following non-emergency numbers, quoting reference number 20*64124:
