Woman arrested after dog attack in Nuneaton

Coventry Editorial 2nd Jul, 2024   0

A WOMAN has been arrested following a dog attack yesterday (July, 1) on Weddington Road in Nuneaton.

Officers were called to reports of a woman being drunk and disorderly while in charge of a large dog.

The woman and her dog allegedly pushed their way into a social club on Weddington Road, where the dog reportedly bit three members of the public.

Warwickshire Police arrested the woman at 6.20pm and contained her dog – which will be subject to a behaviour assessment by the dog liaison officer.

On arrival at the hospital, the woman reportedly proceeded to assault two officers and two nurses, as well as shouting racial slurs.

Following this, a 23-year-old woman from Nuneaton was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly, owning a dog dangerously out of control, four counts of assaulting an emergency worker, and of violating section five of the Public Order Act regarding racial abuse.

Inspector Ryan Walker of Nuneaton Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Dogs require responsibility from their owners, particularly when they are large enough or of a temperament to cause harm.

“We will always take a proactive approach to preventing further harm from dogs that appear dangerous, one way to do this is through a Section two Dangerous Dog Application, where conditions will be applied to control the dog in future.

“Our officers will always respond as quickly as possible when there are threats of serious harm to make the area safe again.”
