At around 12.15pm yesterday (Sunday 3 February), a man and woman were walking their four dogs along the Underbank Reservoir in Sheffield.

It was reported that one of their dogs, which was off its lead, ran up to a 7-year-old boy and attacked him. The boy sustained injuries that resulted in him needing surgery.

The owners gained control of their dog, stopped to assist the victim and tried to leave their contact details, however due to the nature of the incident, the victim’s grandmother did not manage to record them.

Officers would like to reassure the public that this is an isolated incident and are asking anyone that can help provide information to get in touch.

The dog is described as being a large build mastiff cross breed.

The owners are described as being in their 50s.

Did you see the incident? Can you help us to trace the owners?

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident number 717 of 3 February 2019.
