A 14-year-old boy has been injured trying to protect his own dog from a Pit Bull type breed attacking it in the Conisbrough area of Doncaster.
At around 5.30pm on Sunday, 22 April, the teenager was with friends walking his dog, a red Staffordshire bull terrier, in the outer grounds of Conisbrough castle.
He spotted a man and woman walking two dogs, described as Pit Bull types with one completely white in colour and the other white with sandy coloured patches, on retractable leads.
The white and sandy coloured dog being walked by the woman managed to pull free from her grip and ran towards the teen with his dog.
He picked his dog up to protect her from being injured, however the other dog has lunged and bitten him on his left hand causing puncture wounds that required treatment at hospital.
The man and woman retrieved their dog and left the area without checking the victim or his dog were OK.
The man is described as around 5ft 5ins, of a skinny build with short dark hair. The woman is around the same height as the man, dark coloured hair and is of a large build.
Were you in the area at the time? Did you witness the attack?
Anyone who can assist is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident number 894 of 22 April 2018.
