“Officers have been in the area for much of today and our investigations are still ongoing.

“The dog suspected of being involved was seized and a man arrested in connection with this incident and another incident on Wednesday August 25 where it was reported that a dog had attacked another dog causing injuries important and injuring a member of the public in the process.

“We are aware of comments on social media about the circumstances surrounding these incidents and as one arrest has been made we would politely ask people to refrain from speculating in public forums.”
