Second dog attack injures woman in Lincoln

This story is over

A woman is being treated for dog bites and a suspected broken arm after a second dog attack in Lincoln.

At around 1.45pm on March 10, armed police attended a dog attack incident on Keats Close, Lincoln.

Initial indications are that a 38-year-old woman was bitten by what police believe to be a Staffordshire Bull Terrier while intervening in a fight between two dogs.

The dog which gave the woman the injuries was owned by another resident of Keats Close.

Officers humanely destroyed the dog at the address with the consent of the owner.

Two other dogs in the vicinity have also been taken into the care of the City of Lincoln Council dog warden and are pending identification of their owners.

This incident is not believed to be related to the dog attack incident that took place on March 9 in the same area, involving a different dog that attacked a 22-year-old woman.

Police are appealing for witnesses to this second incident. Call police via the 101 non-emergency number.
