A man has been arrested following an alleged dog attack today (Tuesday).

Police were called to Shephalbury Park in Stevenage, near to Kimbolton Crescent, at 10.20am after reports of a loose Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross dog attacking another dog – one of three being walked by women. It later died.

A woman was also bitten on the stomach by the dog – which has been seized by police.

An 34-year-old man from Stevenage has been arrested on suspicion of having a dog dangerously out of control and has been bailed until March 24.

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to contact the Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Team via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
