Police Constable Gerard Masaoy, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“The victim suffered nasty injuries in this attack and we clearly don’t want this dog attacking anyone else.

“I’m appealing for anyone who saw what happened, or anyone who has any information which could assist us with our investigation, to please get in touch with us.

“Finally, I would urge the owner involved to do the right thing and come forward so we can take their account.”
