Police investigating a dog attack and assault on New Year’s Eve in Lowestoft have made a second arrest.
The incident took place when a man was out walking his dog at the North Denes caravan park between 6pm and 8pm on Saturday (31st December). His pet was attacked by two other dogs, both American bulldog type animals, and he was then kicked and punched by a group of male and female youngsters.
A 22 year old male was arrested last night (Wednesday 4th January) on suspicion of assault and he was taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning where he remains. A dog was also seized by police at the man’s address.
An initial arrest was made earlier in the week of a 21 year old man – he was bailed by police pending further enquiries to answer on 4th March and his dog seized by police.
The victim was badly injured and his dog had to be put to sleep after the savage attack.
Anyone who saw this incident or who has information that could assist the investigation please contact Lowestoft police, quoting crime reference number: 37/40/23.
