Appeal- Dog attack Kennington Park 19 Sep 15:01

The Oval Safer Neighbourhood team is appealing for witnesses to an incident in Kennington Park, SE11 on Saturday 10 September at around 20:30hrs whereby a dog received serious injuries in an attack by two other dogs.

 

The dogs were not on leads and ran freely towards the dog before attacking, causing severe injuries to the dog’s stomach.

 

Both dogs were with their owner who then walked off from the park.

 

The owner is described as a black man, in his late thirties, medium build, with dreadlocks and around 5'9" tall.

 

The dogs are described as being similar to Staffordshire Bull Terriers. One of the dogs is described as dark brown with a white coloured chest, with the other described as being dark coloured.

 

Officers are appealing to speak to anyone who has information about the incident, and are particularly keen to speak to anyone who can identify the owner.

 

I would also like to re-assure visitors to the park that such incidents are rare, but ask that all dog walkers take responsibly to ensure that they keep control of their dog at all times .

 

Anyone with information can contact the team on 0208 721 3592 or via

email at Oval.SNT@Met.police.uk. Alternatively you can contact

Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
