Police are hunting for the owner of a dog after a man suffered serious injuries on Monday (March 6).

David Kevill has spoken about spending three days in hospital following an alleged attack around 1pm on Tramway Lane near Walton Summit in Preston.

Mr Kevill suffered a serious arm injury as a result of the incident and attended Chorley Hospital before being transferred to Royal Preston Hospital for surgery.

A statement from Lancashire Police said: “We were called around 10pm on Monday following reports of an assault in Bamber Bridge.

“An investigation is underway and enquiries on-going.”

An image of the attack posted by David’s son Daniel went viral soon after the incident on Monday.

A message accompanying the post alleges that the owner of the dog apologised as he left the scene.

Talking to the Lancashire Post, David said he doesn’t want the dog, a German Shepherd, to be put down. He wants the owner to be traced and he dog to be muzzled.
