A woman, seriously injured in hospital after being attacked by a dog, is said to have been an 'associate' of the owner. The 22-year-old woman, was taken to Lincoln A & E after the incident which happened around the old quarry at the rear of Outer Circle Road in the the city.
She suffered injuries to her scalp, face and arm and has so far been too ill to speak to police officers. Forensic tests are being carried out to establish the breed of the dog which is a predominately white coloured male American pit bull terrier.
The owner of a dog which attacked a woman in Lincoln leaving her with serious injuries has been arrested. Police say the 33-year-old local man will be interviewed later and tests will be carried out to confirm the breed of the dog.
A 21-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assisting suicide following the sudden death of a woman in Sleaford, Lincolnshire.
