Man charged after bulldog attack on boy in Norwich
A man has been charged with allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control after a 10-year-old boy was attacked in Norwich on Sunday.
Steps are now being taken by police to seek destruction of the bulldog.
Police were called to Goldsmith Street in mid-afternoon following reports a child had been attacked by two dogs.
The boy had serious injuries to his arm. A Staffordshire bull terrier, later returned to its owner, and a bull dog were initially seized.
The boy was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
The 20-year-old man, who police said was not the owner but had been looking after the dog, will appear at Norwich Magistrates' Court on 19 July.
A 44-year-old woman arrested in connection with the incident has since been released without charge.
The Staffordshire bull terrier, which belonged to the woman, has been returned.
