Man Attacked by Dog in Liverpool City Centre

A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after he was attacked by a dog in Liverpool City Centre earlier this week. Witnesses claim the man was set upon by a pit bull or bull mastiff at around 6.30pm on Monday in the Ropewalks area of the city.

A dogs unit, as well as a number of police cars and vans responded to the attack, which according to witnesses took place near a group of young children. An elderly woman on a mobility scooter attempted to intervene and sprayed water in the dog’s face. She said:

“My grandchild came running up to me and said ‘don’t you go down there – you’ll not be able to run away’ – but I feared for the children still down there.

“The dog had the man over the bonnet of the car, going for him. His tracksuit bottoms were ripped from him but the man struggled to get free.

“The man was screaming for help.

“I managed to get up to the dog and squirt it in the face with a bottle of water that was in the street, which startled it. Dogs don’t like water directly in their face.”

Witnesses described the incident as ‘horrendous’, with one woman saying:

“I never want to see anything like that in my life, again”

The Merseyside Police dogs unit responded to the attack and it is believed that police marksmen were also called to the emergency on Kent Street. However, according to those at the scene, the animal ran back to its owner following the attack and could not be located.

Merseyside Police have confirmed that the victim suffered wounds to his arms and leg and was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital.
