Horror as girl, 11, is attacked by ‘dangerous & crazy’ dog – with out-of-control beast also mauling man, 74, & woman, 20

A “DANGEROUS and crazy” dog attacked a schoolgirl, a pensioner and a young woman in three separate attacks.

The Alsation pounced on its victims while out for walks with its owner Faisal Waleed, 30, in December.

He has admitted three offences of being the owner of a dog that was dangerously out of control and caused injury.

Hull Crown Court heard how the 11-year-old girl suffered a deep wound to her wrist while walking home from school.

Waleed had been walking the dog with an elastic lead when it attacked.

Rachel Scott, prosecuting said: “The dog lunged at her and broke away from the defendant. It bit her on the left wrist, causing her to the fall to the floor.

“She was screaming and could see blood running down her arm. The defendant pulled the dog away, initially without success. On pulling a second time, it did let go of her. A passer-by saw what happened and helped her and called an ambulance.”

The young girl required several stitches – and her mum says she still suffers with nightmares and has no feeling in two of the fingers of her left hand.

“She is especially frightened to go near any big dogs.

“The nightmares are still continuing and the nightmares are upsetting her greatly. Her personality has changed. She has lost a lot of confidence even now six months later.”

Meanwhile, the 74-year-old man had been out for a morning walk in Victoria Dock at 8am where he was viciously attacked from behind.

Rachel Scott, prosecuting said the dog tackled him to the ground while his owner attempted to pull the hound off him.

He was bit on his right arm and both shoulders.

Waleed offered the pensioner money and a taxi home but the victim refused and went to hospital on foot.

The victim said: “I am now very conscious of any dog that I see in the street. I now feel very anxious when I see dogs off-lead.

“I was fortunate enough to be wearing a thick coat, which took in most of the damage. I think that if I had not been wearing it, I would have been more seriously injured.

“I suffered for a few months afterwards with pain in the affected areas, which, thankfully, now has worn off. I sometimes get flashbacks of the incident, particularly when I am walking through the area where the attack happened.

“I am wary of any dog and look carefully around myself whenever I go out. I even jumped at a bird the other day, which I don’t think I would have done if I had not been attacked.”

Just a day later a 20-year-old woman was attacked while walking with her mum in Lock Keepers Court at 7pm when she saw Waleed with two large dogs.

She came across Waleed who was walking two dogs.

The dog, who was on a lead jumped towards her and bit her right arm.

Miss Scott said: “The dog continued to bite her arm and jumped up towards her face. This went on for about one minute.”

“She now has an increased fear of dogs. That’s very disappointing to her because she is a dog lover.”

Julia Baggs, mitigating, said: “These are troubling offences, which led to deeply unpleasant injuries.” Waleed got the dog from someone that he did not know and it was primarily as company for him.

“He was living alone at the time in a flat on Victoria Dock,” said Miss Baggs. He was struggling clearly with the dog’s behaviour and was not aware that it was going to be aggressive.

“The dog has been destroyed.”

Judge John Thackray KC told Waleed: “All three victims were attacked and injured. Your victims must have been terrified. It must have been obvious to you, if not before the first incident, then inevitably after the second, that your dog could behave dangerously.

“You behaved with a reckless disregard for the safety of others. The incidents could so easily have led to a fatality. Only good fortune prevented that.

“Understandably, your actions have had a profound effect upon your victims. They may never fully recover from these attacks.”

Waleed has been jailed for two years and is banned from owning a dog indefinitely.
