Man injured in vicious Lincoln dog attack

A local man suffered five puncture wounds to his leg after reportedly being attacked by a “dangerous” dog in South Hykeham.

Ray Crabb told The Lincolnite he was attacked several times, bitten and dragged off his bike by a Dobermann dog at South Hykeham Lake off Thorpe Lane at around 11am on Sunday, February 10.

The victim said the dog looked like a Doberman (example pictured)

He sustained five puncture wounds to the back of his left leg but his arm was protected by his clothing.

Ray said he was bitten and dragged off his bike by the dog.

Ray said: “The owner, a young lady, was walking with her friend and another dog. It (the Doberman) was not on a lead and could not be controlled by the owner, who showed no regret of what had happened.

“It was quite a scary experience. All I wanted to do was to get away from the area but the dog kept chasing after me.

Ray said it was quite a scary experience after suffering leg injuries in the attack.
