A six-year-old boy suffered bite wounds to his face, body and hand when he was knocked off his bicycle and attacked by a dog in Brighton Hill in August this year (2019).
Fortunately a man passing by pulled the dog off the boy and a police officer patrolling in the park also came to help. this is not the first attack of this sort.
