Oxford dog attack: Toddler bitten on leg

A toddler has been bitten on his leg by two dogs in Oxford.

The 21-month-old boy and his mother were walking in Horspath Road when two loose Staffordshire Bull terrier-type animals attacked.

The toddler underwent surgery to the wound on his right leg at John Radcliffe hospital following the incident at about midday on Saturday.

Police are appealing for witnesses and have seized the brown and white dogs pending further investigation.

PC Eleanor Batty said: "I would like to reassure the public that we have seized the dogs believed to be responsible for causing these injuries."
